About the Festival

Atlanta Jewish Life Foundation, Inc. dba Atlanta Jewish Life Festival, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, was founded by Michael A. Morris, Kaylene Ladinsky and Rick Slagle. The event is Atlanta's largest single-day festival promoting and celebrating Jewish and Israeli arts, food, music, and culture while connecting the community to local synagogues, nonprofits, and social action groups. The event aims to strengthen community connections to Jewish beliefs, traditions, and family.

In keeping with the AJT’s mission of “Keeping Jewish Atlanta Connected”, in 2017, AJT created the Atlanta Jewish Connector, an on-line community calendar and directory for long-time Atlantans.

Having successfully sustained and enhanced a community Jewish newspaper and developed an on-line resource guide for Jewish Atlanta, AJT wanted to broaden their impact further on the Atlanta Jewish community to host an annual one-day event, and that is when AJLF was created.

Now in its fifth year, the most recent AJLF invited attendees to “give it their best shot” at March Mitzvah Madness. The festival involved over 60 different Jewish organizations and businesses as well as a special appearance from the Atlanta Hawks mascot, Harry the Hawk, and some of the Hawks’ Dancers.
