Atlanta Journal Constitution: Atlanta’s Jewish community not hit by Madoff

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that Atlanta’s major Jewish funders were not hit directly by the Bernie Madoff fraud:

The Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, however, a fund-raising body for social service agencies in Atlanta and abroad, “had no exposure to Madoff indebtments,” said president Steve Rakitt. Officials with two significant Jewish-owned foundations in Atlanta —- those of Home Depot founders Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus —- said they were not affected.
