Adam Hirsch '96 Honored in Atlanta Jewish Times 40 Under 40
Congratulations to Adam Hirsch '96 for being honored as Atlanta Jewish Times inaugural 40 Under 40 - In an era when all we seem to see in the media is bad news, it is refreshing to report some good news and recognize those individuals who persevere and focus on the positive things in life.

Likewise, our children need to see positive Jewish role models right here in our own community.
