Louis Rose 
Society for the Preservation of Jewish History 

Membership List


The following members of San Diego County's Jewish community, past or present, have been selected by members of the Louis Rose Society for the Preservation of Jewish History to be honored or memorialized. Some of our honorees were universally loved, others were controversial during their lifetimes. All contributed to the development of San Diego's Jewish community, or to the betterment of the overall general community, or to both. Their pages will be objective repositories for news articles, links, photographs, and essays on their lives. We invite readers to send articles or remembrances about any of our honorees, for possible posting on the web, to Donald H. Harrison at Furthermore, we encourage students and historians to develop papers about members of the San Diego Jewish community, utilizing and citing this basic research.
