SIM-Janus 100th Birthday

Leah Janus

Leah Janus has reached her 100th birthday. Settling in Atlanta in 1942, she and husband Sidney, z”l, raised three children and lived a life of service to faith and community. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1985 at Ahavath Achim Synagogue, where she was active in the Sisterhood. With heartfelt joy and appreciation, she remembers her many co-workers and friends at the Brandeis University Women’s Committee, Zionist Organization of America, Hadassah and National Council of Jewish Women, for which she was entrusted with leadership. With gratitude for the privilege of citizenship, she also recalls exhilarating years of stewardship at the League of Women Voters.
