“We were thrilled that the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA) was named best local nonprofit and the MJCCA’s Camp Barney Medintz was named best sleepaway camp in the AJT’s Best of Jewish Atlanta poll,” Marcus JCC CEO Jared Powers said. “For several generations now, our agency has provided life-enhancing programming to more than 55,000 people every year in our community. Today, the MJCCA strives to create spaces (Zaban Park and Camp Barney Medintz) that foster growth, encourage people of all ages to try new things, and build lifelong friendships, all in a welcoming and inclusive environment that celebrates Jewish values, traditions and culture. We take great pride in turning everyday minutes into Jewish moments that are remembered for a lifetime, and I speak for all of us who love the MJCCA when I say thank you for this recognition.”
