Hugo Kahn

Hugo Kahn has been an integral part of the New Orleans Jewish community since he moved here in 1967 to work for the Krauss Company, moving up the ladder from comptroller to president. While at Krauss, Hugo was active in many initiatives of the Downtown Development District, the Better Business Bureau, and the Historic District Landmark Commission. But Hugo is best known for his service to the New Orleans Jewish community, serving on many boards and as president of then-Tikvat Shalom (now Shir Chadash) and the Jewish Federation. When they are not attending meetings of the many organizations they take leadership roles in, Hugo and his wife Lis travel to visit their combined family of seven daughters.
