The San Diego History Center’s annual gala, The Makers of San Diego History, honors the institutions, communities, and people who have made history in their own time. This year we will be honoring the Jewish community in San Diego and celebrating their uniqueness and vast contributions to the place we all call home.  Please join us for this festive evening with Master of Ceremonies, Dan Cohen of CBS8.
