SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Blacks and Jews in Atlanta marked the 50th anniversary of the bombing of The Temple on Peachtree Street – the first Civil Rights-era attack in Atlanta. The synagogue was targeted because its rabbi, Jacob Rothschild, was an outspoken proponent of civil rights. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a story on the bombing’s commemoration.
