About Jacob Raz
Born in Poland and came to Palestine ~1924. Was member of Haganah and fought in the War of Independence. Helped rescue Children of the Holocaust at the end of WWII. Became an electrician in Israel, had a famiily and moved to USA in 1966 where I had electrical business and went into a food concession in Milwaukee. The family went back to Israel after a few years while I stayed on and met my present wife. We moved to California in 2000 after we both retired from our work.
Since retiring I have gone back to my hobbies of metal sculpture and oil painting which have been very satisfying.
