Biographical/Historical Note:  Martin and Doris Goldstein were active in the Soviet Jewry movement for many years.

Doris served as Chairman of the Atlanta Jewish Federation’s Soviet Jewry Committee for three years, as well as on the Executive Committee and Board of Governors of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry. She met several well-known former refuseniks like Ida Nudel and Vladimir Slapak and has written a number of articles and spoken to local groups on the subject of Soviet Jewry. She also serviced as President of Ahavath Achim Sisterhood and Epstein Solomon Schechter School and served on numerous boards and committees in the city including the Archives Committee for the Jewish Heritage Center. She also authored the Ahavath Achim centennial book, “From Generation to Generation,” as well as the 120th anniversary book, “My House shall be a House of Prayer if all People.”  She also co-authored a book with Mark Bauman called, “The Jews of Atlanta: 150 Years of Creating Community.” She also wrote a chapter in the book, “Religions of Atlanta.”

Scope and Content:  Researchers studying the Martin and Doris Goldstein Papers will gain insight into Jewish life in Atlanta and the community’s efforts on behalf of Soviet Jewry. The papers are arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
