Newsletter No. 10: Louis
Rose Society for the Preservation of Jewish History
Please help us grow our biographical encyclopedia; please designate your honoree or assign that right to the Society
By Donald H. Harrison
The Louis Rose Society is in the process of performing two simultaneous mitzvot—1) collecting money for the Louis Rose Society, and 2) Developing an on-line biographical encyclopedia of the San Diego Jewish community.
Many people who have contributed to the Society are unaware that if their contributions have reached the membership level of $36, they may designate someone to be a biographical subject in our on-line encyclopedia. Nor do they realize that for each additional $18 contribution, they may designate yet another person to be included in the encyclopedia.
As it stands today, approximately one-third of our members
and donors have contributed money to the Louis Rose Society without designating
an honoree, or have remaining balances that could be put towards the designation
of additional honorees.
If your name is on the list below, and you would like to designate someone, please email Donald H. Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will provide you with a statement of your account. It is possible that we don’t have the emails of everyone on the list, so if you recognize someone on the message, please alert them to this message.
If you do not wish to designate someone, you may arrange to transfer the credit to the Louis Rose Society itself for honoring people deemed worthy. This procedure will enable the Society to honor those persons who have passed on without descendants, but whose accomplishments and contributions to our community or to the general community are richly documented in historical sources.
Here is the list:
