Nathan Effel was born in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents had originally come from Russia and his father was in the scrap metal business. His father was killed when Nathan was young when his truck stalled on some train tracks in Hapeville and was struck by a train. Nathan attended public schools and participated in sports activities at the Jewish Community Center including football, basketball, baseball and boxing. He did receive a Jewish education and was bar mitzvahed at Ahavath Achim, where he also sang in the choir. As an adult Nathan ran a liquor store and Nate's Cut Rate Grill. He married Adele Finkelstein, whose family was in the clothing trade and she opened Adele's Style Shop. He recalls his family and childhood, growing up Jewish in Atlanta, the civil rights era and interaction with Blacks during that time (both he and his father had Black employees).
