just a small correction: "kof", in hebrew, means "monkey" and not "priest". (and "kop" in yiddish means "head".) i think you meant "cohen tzedek".

Perhaps I am mentioning something already known to you
however, the Katz name simply is based on the Hebrew
"kof" and "tzedek" which means pious priest. Hope this

rather its Hebrew transliteration
