More than 450 young Jewish adults attended the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta’s annual Young Adult Signature Event at SweetWater Brewery on Saturday, Aug. 22. “The goal of this event is to engage young adults in Jewish life,” said Shira Rothman, the director of Federation’s Under 40 Division. “It is our hope that people will leave this event and get involved by volunteering or participating on committees and make their contributions to the future of our Jewish community in one way or another.” Federation received positive feedback from people who grew up in Atlanta (“I couldn’t believe how many new people were at this event,” Dorrie Paradies said) and from newcomers (“I was really excited to meet new people, and everybody was so friendly,” Sophie Goldsmith said).
