Epstein Harry Rabbi OHC.JPG

Rabbi Harry Epstein born into a rabbinical family in Plunge, Lithuania in 1903. The Epstein family moved to Chicago, Illinois when Rabbi Epstein was 5 years old where his father became the rabbi of the largest synagogue in Chicago. Rabbi Epstein was educated at a yeshiva in Chicago and then returned to Lithuania to study at the Slobodka Yeshiva and later in Palestine at the Hebron Yeshiva. When he returned to the United States, he was invited to become the rabbi of a congregation in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1929 he married Reva Chashesman and shortly thereafter he took up the rabbinate of Ahavath Achim Congregation in Atlanta. Rabbi Epstein discusses his rabbinic education and the Musar movement to which the Slobodka Yeshiva subscribed. He introduced a Sunday school, and mixed seating of men and women. He led Ahavath Achim from an Orthodox orientation to Conservative Judaism. Rabbi Epstein recalls many prominent members of the Atlanta Jewish community and discusses the Zionist movement and his career in national Jewish affairs.
