Goldgar Vida OHC.jpg

Vida Goldgar began to write for the Southern Israelite in the 1964. She worked her way up to editor and then finally acquired the Jewish newspaper after the death of Adolph Rosenberg, the publisher, in 1977. She won many awards for her journalism. Originally a midwesterner from Columbia, Illinois she came to Atlanta with her husband and family via New York in the 1959. She juggled raising four children, her work in Jewish community activities (Hadassah, Temple Sisterhood, B’nai B’rith, Anti-Defamation League), and her increasingly more responsible and time-consuming work at the Southern Israelite. After a divorce in 1973 she assumed a full-time job at the Southern Israelite. Vida was a convert to Judaism, although she later discovered that her maternal grandfather, David Schein, had been Jewish after tracing his roots back to Poland and his immigration to the United States, where he settled in New Orleans. Her husband, Myron (Mike) Goldgar was from Macon, Georgia and was Jewish. Their children were raised Jewish, although they did not necessarily marry other Jews. Vida describes her extensive volunteer work in the Atlanta Jewish community, raising a family, working with Adolph Rosenberg and the ups-and-downs of nearly 40 years of her work with the Southern Israelite, including covering the Lebanon War in Beirut in 1982. In 1987 she sold the Southern Israelite to Jewish newspapers publishers from Kansas City, Missouri although she stayed on as a consultant. The newspaper was renamed the Atlanta Jewish Times and is still being published (as of 2011). She died in 2004, a greatly beloved member of the Atlanta Jewish community.
