Boris Levinson (Loewensohn) (1884-1947) was a Russian-born American composer.
Levenson was born on 22 March 1884 in Ackerman, Bessarabia (now Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, Ukraine, then a province of Russian Empire). Levenson became a pupil of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, before becoming a prominent composer of his own right. A Bessarabian Jew, Levenson focused his work on Jewish folk songs. He traveled to the United States in 1920.
