  1. My dad used to remark, “we are blessed to have many outstanding Jewish families in Augusta.” And indeed, he was so right. This will be an outstanding addition to the area and will no doubt be treasured not just now but for future generations.

  2. Proud to be volunteering with the Augusta Jewish Museum team and applaud the AJM Board, Historic Augusta, and the CSRA for creating this important addition to the cultural organizations already in the community.
