Abraham and Anne Ratner Scholar-in-Residence Weekend
More than thirty years ago, Abraham and Anne Ratner, of blessed memory, established our Abraham and Anne Ratner Scholar-in-Residence Weekend.
The Ratners’ devotion to Jewish education is evidenced not only by their endowment of this weekend, but by their support of many worthy Jewish and communal organizations and charities in San Diego and throughout the world.
May their memories continue to serve as blessings.
