Motitz Winter was a rabbi in Germany for twenty-eight years. After the Nazis burned down his synagogue, he went to Shanghai,
China and served the refugee Jewish community there for two years. In 1941, he came to Santa Cruz, California where he led
the Beth Israel Synagogue and the Jewish community center. In 1942, he moved to Oakland and conducted services for several
Bay Area Jewish communities. In time, he became the director of the Oakland Jewish Welfare Federation's Hebrew school and
the librarian of the Jewish community center. In 1945, he and his wife, Erna, became American citizens.
