Portrait of a Donor: Honoring Grandpa on His Naturalization Anniversary

Earlier this month, we got an exciting package in our mailbox: Harriet Katz, made a gift in honor of the 100th anniversary of her grandfather's naturalization and included with it a copy of the originial naturalization certificate (below) and a photo of her grandfather and grandmother (to the left)
 
Nathan Katz came to New York from Russia in or near modern day Kiev, Ukraine in the 1890's. He and his wife Molly had 6 boys, including Harriet's father, who grew up in New York speaking Yiddish. He eventually moved to Dayton, Ohio.

The Lautenberg Amendment, which helps persecuted religious minorities fleeing Iran and the former Soviet Union, expired on June 1, 2011. The provision must be renewed each year. A failure to reauthorize the Amendment would make it difficult for the U.S. to protect Christian, Jewish, Baha’i, and other religious minorities fleeing Iran and could end family reunification for Jews and Evangelicals in the Former Soviet Union with relatives in the U.S.
