In the Spotlight: The Kogon Family
Sara, Ross, Marion, and Gerald.
I am a native Atlantan and Sara grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts. We love spending time with family and we still do Shabbat every week with my extended family (grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and cousin) – every Friday night, we have four generations sitting at the Shabbat table!
Sara and I do most of our community work as a team; we met doing pro-Israel political advocacy.
We have two great kids; Marion (age 3) attends the Epstein School, and Gerald (15 months) goes to the Atlanta Speech School.
We belong to the AA because of our family’s history and ties to the synagogue, as well as the wonderful combination of a large synagogue body (there is so much potential to do big things is there) and the progressive ideals and culture of a smaller synagogue. The synagogue never feels as big as it is because of the community, culture and warmth.
