A part of the Atlanta Jewish Times’ mission is to “Keep Jewish Atlanta Connected.” I believe that we have accomplished our mission in a very big way with this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards and this Best of Jewish Atlanta publication. It is times like this that I ask myself, what is the true definition of “Jewish Atlanta?” Is it the Jewish members of the Atlanta community, or does it include all Atlanta community members who contribute to the welfare of the Jewish community? The truth is, I don’t have the exact answer. I am sure that many of you believe you do and it is probably different depending on which of you I would ask. In my opinion, the correct answer is relative to the circumstances that surround you when asking, “What is the true definition of Jewish Atlanta?” Today the circumstances are vast, and the community is large and vibrant. We made the decision this year to let our readers decide who is the Best of Jewish Atlanta. According to our readers’ choice, it includes community members, Jewish and non-Jewish of Atlanta working together to benefit the welfare of each other. This special publication is inclusive to all, and we see the connections that we share with one another while caring for our children, elders, family members and selves; enjoying dining, concerts, parties, and plays or shopping for a new home, reliable car or just a loaf of bread. So… while reading the Readers’ Choice: 2018 Best of Jewish Atlanta, think about how great it is to be a part of such a vast and vibrant community. One in which we can all contribute to the welfare of one another while being grateful for those that we consider being our favorites. This has been a fun and rewarding publication for the entire Atlanta Jewish Times team, and we take great joy in bringing this year’s Best of Jewish Atlanta to you. We are already looking forward to the next one. Live well and laugh often,

Kaylene Ladinsky Associate Publisher Atlanta Jewish Times

I WOULDN’T BE HERE WITHOUT GRADY. I KNEW MY INJURY WAS LIFE-THREATENING. A bullet was lodged in my neck and I needed the kind of care only Grady’s level 1 trauma center could provide. When I arrived at Grady’s Marcus Trauma Center, a team of surgeons was waiting for me. Everyone was focused on doing what they needed to assess my injury and get me ready for surgery. Dr. Mark Shapiro and the entire team at Grady were amazing. They had the training and experience they needed to save my life. A week and a half later, I was released from the hospital. That was only possible because of the care I received at Grady. If anything ever happens, Grady is the place to go.
