Davis Academy students and parents kicked off a yearlong celebration of the school’s 25th anniversary Friday, Aug. 18, with a Kabbalat Shabbat featuring guest performer Billy Jonas. The students sang various Jewish prayers as faculty and staff performed alongside Jonas. “Many questioned the need or room for a Reform Jewish day school in Atlanta 25 years ago; however, years later, we have proven that it has enhanced not only the community, but almost a thousand graduates who continue to fulfill Davis’ experience in high schools, colleges and beyond,” Head of School Amy Shafron said.
