James Arogeti was a Sephardic Jew. His family came from Turkey and Rhodes. His father, Behor (Jack) was a shoemaker. Behor (Jack) immigrated to the United States when he was 19 years old and later brought over the rest of his family. James had five siblings. James enlisted in the air force during World War II and served as a gunner on a B-17 based in England. On his return we went to Emory University and became an accountant. He opened his own accounting firm in 1952, which became Habif Arogeti & Wynne. James discusses his unique childhood and the relations between Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews in Atlanta. He discusses his childhood, education in public schools and religious education, his career and family. He also discusses intermarriage (between the Jewish sects), local rabbis and synagogues (Or Ve Shalmon and the Temple), the growth of the Jewish community in Atlanta, Sephardic customs and language, Jewish clubs and social life, and prominent Sephardic Jews in Atlanta.
