SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //
Community leader Emanuel “Manny” Fialkow will be honored at the upcoming ninth-annual Sidney Feldman Legacy Golf Tournament, sponsored by the Greenfield Hebrew Academy. The event, set for May 6, is fitting considering the honoree’s passion for the sport.
Fialkow’s love for golf is part of his professional and philanthropic life. He’s been an avid golfer since childhood and was part of the golf team at Emory

University during his time there as an undergraduate student. He later volunteered to be GHA’s golf coach and led his students to a team championship as well as medals for two individuals.
He was also a co-founder of GHA’s annual golf tournament, the predecessor to the Sidney Feldman Cup. And besides his service to the school, Fialkow has worked on projects benefiting Ahavath Achim Synagogue and the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta; served on the Board of Directors of the Jewish National Fund; and is a major financial contributor to several organizations that assist less fortunate members of society.
Manny – who lives with his wife Stacy and children Ethan (GHA ’10), Samuel (GHA ’14), Sydney Rae (Epstein ’16) and Isaac Geronimo (Epstein ’18) – says one of his greatest pleasures is playing golf with his father and his children. Unlike Sidney Feldman, Fialkow has never “shot his age,” but claims to “shoot the weather” all of the time, especially in Atlanta during July and August.
The tournament, set for May 6, kicks off with registration, breakfast and the presentation of awards at 8:30 a.m., with a shotgun start to follow at 10 a.m. A gala reception, including raffle prizes, will conclude the proceedings. Proceeds from the event will benefit GHA’s scholarship fund.
