Join us for a fascinating discussion of Atlanta's rich Jewish history with Jeremy Katz, the senior archivist of the Breman Museum and author of a new book on this same topic, in conversation with Rabbi Phil Kranz. 


The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum is proud to announce the publication of a new book on the history of Jewish Atlanta: Images of America: The Jewish Community of Atlanta, authored by the museum’s own Senior Director of Archives, Jeremy Katz.

Utilizing the Ida Pearle and Joseph Cuba Archives for Southern Jewish History at The Breman Museum as the main source of images, the book illustrates through 200 images the visionary leaders in the Jewish community that helped Atlanta evolve from a sleepy, backwater, 19th-century frontier railroad town into the 21st-century international metropolis we know today. It also chronicles the dark episodes of blatant antisemitism that traumatized the community and had national implications, such as the lynching of Leo M. Frank, The Temple Bombing, and the deliberate expulsion of Jewish students from Emory University Dental School.

Available wherever books are sold or online at https://bit.ly/3bF8k4M. All authorship royalties support The Breman Museum.
