The Epstein School’s 41 eighth-graders graduated from the Conservative day school Tuesday night, May 24, with a few words of reflection, hope and advice from Head of School David Abusch-Magder, Principal Myrna Rubel, former Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta Chairman Marty Kogon and Congregation Gesher L’Torah Rabbi Michael Bernstein. The eighth-grade Knesset co-presidents, Sydney Fialkow and Carly Judenberg, also offered eloquent parting words to their fellow members of the Class of 2016.
