Biographical/Historical Note:  The United Hebrew School was created by leaders of Ahavath Achim Congregation and housed in the Jewish Education Alliance building. When the congregation moved to a larger synagogue, two or three classrooms were designated in the building’s basement for the school. A Sunday school was developed in the early 1920s to augment the activities of the United Hebrew School. Women members organized themselves into a sisterhood in September, 1920 and took upon themselves the task of developing and expanding the Sunday school.

Scope and Content:  Researchers examining the records of the United Hebrew School of Atlanta will gain insight into Jewish education in the early to mid-20th century.  All material is arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically within each folder.
