As the 90 guests arrived, music played by Atlanta Fever Entertainment of Canton, photographs were taken by Madison Shaw Photography of Acworth and a slide show of photos and newspaper clippings of Etz Aviv events from 2000 to 2013 were shown.
The celebration began with a welcome by Etz Aviv President, Faith Shatzman, including the acknowledgment of Atlanta Chapter President Sue Rothstein, Southeast Regional President Ruthanne Warnick and Hadassah National Board members Anita Levy and Sue Moye who joined us for the event. Faith praised Marsha Bloomfield, event chair, for the perfectly orchestrated 13th birthday bash, and Bloomfield gave a hearty “thank you” to the event sponsors and to each of her committee members for helping to make the evening so special.
The traditional Jewish blessings for the wine and the bread were followed by a delicious buffet dinner. The festivities continued with a candle lighting ceremony.
