Historic Jewish Atlanta Tour: MACoM – Metro Atlanta Community Mikvah

Experience History at its Source!

Learn all about the ritual of the mikvah and specifically about the MACoM Metro Atlanta community Mikvah. Enjoy a short tour of the new facility and a staff-led discussion.

The mikvah is an essential gateway to Judaism. For those who convert to (or are adopted into) Judaism, immersion in this special pool of water that meets certain ritual criteria is the act that makes them part of our Jewish people, and it is essential for many other lifecycle and spiritual uses as well.

    Bearing Witness: Robert Ratonyi (Hungary)

    Robert remembers a childhood scarred by fear, upheaval, hunger and loss. He was six years old when forced to wear a yellow star and face the terrors of war and ghetto life without his parents, both of whom were deported to concentration camps. He grew up under communist dictatorship and escaped Hungary following the bloody uprising of 1956. A graduate of MIT and Drexel University, Robert went on to a successful business career.
