Santa Barbara Hillel Mourns the Passing of Professor and Nobel Laureate Walter Kohn

Apr 21, 2016

Santa Barbara Hillel mourns the passing of Professor and Nobel Laureate Walter Kohn, and offers our deepest condolences to his beloved wife Mara. Just two years ago we honored the two of them at our Hall of Fame event. Walter was an inspiration to our students and a giant in his field. Chancellor Yang’s announcement and tribute is attached here. May Walter’s memory always be a blessing, and may his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
