In honor of the Alexander Muss High School in Israel’s 40th anniversary, the institution honored 40 alumni on its “Top 40 @ 40” list, released in late October. Among the authors, rabbis, teachers, entrepreneurs, executives, celebrities and activists were four Jewish community leaders who call the Atlanta metro area home:
