About the Katzins

Katzins photoFor over 30 years, the late Jerome and Miriam Katzin were among the most generous and engaged supporters of UCSD in the San Diego community.  The Jewish Studies Program in particular benefited from their munificence, along with the School of Medicine and the Rady School of Business.
