JCRC Atlanta held our 2012 Annual Meeting on August 12, 2012 at Ahavath Achim Synagogue. The Jewish Community Relations Council of Atlanta welcomed new Officers and Board Members and extended thanks to those volunteers leaving office.  Our first President, Harold Kirtz, retired from office with our thanks and appreciation.   Harold’s dedicated service to the JCRCA  was recognized with the presentation of a Shofar — symbolic of his leadership in sounding the call for Jewish activism in our community and heeding the call for social justice everywhere.

Larry Gold, National Chair of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, addressed the audience and stressed the imperative of building relationships throughout the community.

Sincerest appreciation to the JCRCA Nominating Committee:  Jeff Willard (Chair), Janice Ellin, Howard Friedman, Margo Gold and Toby Sidman.
