Was Samuel Cohen Jewish?

Samuel Cohen

Well, to make a long story short, Samuel Cohen was Jewish!

Since Samuel Cohen's mother was Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Samuel Cohen (whose full birth name was Samuel Theodore Cohen) was born on January 25, 1921 in Brooklyn, New-York. Samuel Cohen passed away on November 28, 2010 (aged 89).

He is generally credited as the father of the neutron bomb.
