Biographical / Historical
Nathan Katz was born in the Ukranian town of Progrobish, near Kiev, in either 1903 or 1906. He lied about his age to escape conscription in the Russian army. Rabbi Katz immigrated with his family to the United States in the 1920s. His given name of Nechemia was changed to Nathan at Ellis Island. Rabbi Katz was ordained by Yeshiva Yavne, an Orthodox yeshiva in Brooklyn and lived in New York for 14 years. In 1937, he married Anne Shofman and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, for the purpose of organizing the employees of Lovable Brassiere. His union attempts failed and he began to work with Congregation Anshi S'fard, where he remained as spiritual leader for more than 50 years. Rabbi Katz died in 1998.
