Jewish Atlanta’s 1996 Olympic Flame 4The end of the Rio Olympics on Sunday, Aug. 21, naturally reminded us of Atlanta’s time to shine in the Olympic torchlight 20 years earlier, when, of course, the Atlanta Jewish Times was a keen observer of the Summer Games.

Fortunately for all of us, former AJT writer and editor Roni Robbins kept a copy of a special, 56-page, glossy-covered publication that she edited for the occasion, “The Jewish Guide to the 1996 Summer Games.” We couldn’t reproduce the entire guide, but we hope a look at some of the highlights will bring back memories of where you were 20 years ago.
