Throughout his career, Michael has successfully balanced business and philanthropic interests. Since 2014, he has been the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times (AJT), a weekly newspaper that has been in continuous circulation for more than 94 years. It has given him the opportunity to serve the community by “Keeping Jewish Atlanta Connected.” Since acquiring the AJT, he has expanded the paper’s commitment to the community by creating the Atlanta Jewish Connector, an online Jewish events calendar and resource guide, and the Atlanta Jewish Life Festival, bringing Jewish organizations together.
Michael currently serves on several charitable boards including the Georgia Aquarium, Georgia Commission on the Holocaust, National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Friends of the IDF for the Southeast region, Jewish National Fund of Greater Atlanta and he is the current chairman of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity Foundation. He is a graduate of Leadership Atlanta’s Class of 2001 (the best year ever) and has served, by presidential appointment, to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council.
Michael earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Vanderbilt University in 1985 and received his MBA, with honors, from the Goizueta Business School of Emory University in 1992. He has four daughters, Jacqueline, Alexandra, Lydia and Hannah.+ More... - Less...
