Atlanta City-Wide Minyan

On Sunday, May 22, Men's Clubs in Atlanta held a City-Wide Minyan. About thirty men attended, representing several congregations and Men's Clubs in the north Atlanta area.

Don Cohen, co-president of the Congregation Beth Shalom Men's Club, served as emcee, and Barry Kreisler davened shacharit. At breakfast, Cantor Joel Fox of Congregation Ahavath Achim punched the Ruach-Meter up a notch with spirited niggunim and songs. Anshei Darom Regional Veep Irwin Weitz and Atlanta Area Veep Matt Gottlieb spoke a few words, as did Stan Schnitzer, the FJMC Training Veep. Lotta veeps, that.

With the leadership of our various clubs meeting for breakfast on a regular basis, we're beginning to take the first real steps toward creating a closely-knit regional Men's Club organization in Atlanta. This City-Wide Minyan was the first in what, hopefully, will be a series of activities that involve Men's Clubs of several area congregations. Our goal is more friendships, more contacts, and more opportunities to get to know one another – not just at Convention or at the annual Anshei Darom retreat.
