Kopel Kahana (1895-1978) was a British rabbinical scholar and authority on Jewish, Roman, and English law.
Born in Eisiskes, Lithuania in 1895, Kahana studied at Lithuanian yeshivot and served as rabbi in Bialowieza and Rozanai, Poland.
Among his published writings are:
- Three Great Systems of Jurisprudence (1955), a comparative study of Jewish, Roman, and English Law
- The Case for Jewish Civil Law in the Jewish State (1960), which argues that Jewish law contained enough potential to be able to govern Israel with efficiency and justice
- The Theory of Marriage in Jewish Law (1966), which expounds the Jewish concept of marriage and correct misconceptions concerning it.
Under the name of "K. Kagan", he contributed articles to some of the leading American and English law reviews.
Kahana died in 1978.
