Mordechai David (Marcos) Katz is from Mexico, a Zionist and prominent businessman active in Mexico and Israel. He is a Holocaust survivor who was sent as a youth on Aliyah to the Kfar HaNoar HaDati, a religious youth village. In 1947 he joined his parents in Mexico where he became involved in community life, ultimately becoming one of its leaders. Together with Adina, he has invested much of his vitality, time and resources to Jewish education in Mexico, Israel and the US.
