The Atlanta Jewish Times, a Southern Israelite publication, is owned and published by Michael A. Morris. Michael Jacobs is the editor.
The mission of the Atlanta Jewish Times is to create a sense of community throughout the geographically dispersed Jewish people of greater Atlanta. The AJT accomplishes its mission through the timely dissemination of local news and important national Jewish and Israeli interests; support of local synagogue, nonprofit and cultural endeavors and events; the announcement of family simchas and lifecycle events; thought-provoking dialogue and debate on current issues and Jewish ideas; and the strengthening of the bonds and understanding of Jewish culture, tradition and family.
While the AJT is distributed free throughout the community, on the web and through social media outlets, home delivery is offered as a convenience and as an opportunity for anyone in the Jewish community to support this mission.
