The Atlanta Jewish Times was, until January of 1987, known as the Southern Israelite. It was established in Augusta, Georgia in 1925 by Rabbi H. Cerf Strauss to serve Jewish readers in the southeastern section of the United States. Within a few years the newspaper was sold to Herman Dessauer who moved the publication to Atlanta. In 1929, he was joined by M. Stephen Schiffer, who later became sole owner and publisher. Through the ingenuity and determination of Schiffer, the publication managed to stay afloat for the 22 years of his ownership, even during the harsh years of the Depression. In 1931, under Schiffer's direction, the format of the paper was changed to a monthly magazine. A tabloid-size newspaper was added in 1934. The magazine met its demise in 1972, as a result of a decrease in advertising revenues. In 1951, the paper was again sold, this time to a group of Georgians headed by Adolph Rosenberg, a native of Albany, Georgia who had been employed by the "Southern Israelite" since 1940. As a result of the 1977 death of Rosenberg the newspaper was sold to Jack Geldbart, an Atlanta lawyer who retained ownership for only 2 years. In 1979, the paper changed hands for the fourth time when it was purchased by Vida Godgar. In 1985, it was sold again, and is presently owned by Sun Publications Inc. The records range from 1929 to 1985 and include correspondence, biographical material, records and memorabilia from communities outside of Atlanta and the state of Georgia, and general files. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder. The records are divided into two series: Series I consists of resource files, which include material relating to the various persons and subjects which were researched for articles for the paper. Series II consists of general operating files. Finding aid for this collection available online:
