The Legacy of Jacob Elsas:  A Man’s Commitment to Atlanta

Thursday, February 15th, 7pm

Nina and Jacob Elsas – Co-Founders of The Patch Works Art & History Center in Cabbagetown – will present “The Legacy of Jacob Elsas: A Man’s Commitment to Atlanta.” They will discuss his transition from a 19th-century, working-class European-Jewish immigrant into one of the United States’ most successful industrialists. Guests will hear how Jacob’s long-held beliefs defined his ultimate goal: to help reshape war-torn Atlanta into a world-class and competitive metropolis. His philanthropic efforts, many of which revolved around education and healthcare, continue to provide Atlantans with their services to this day.

Location: Cathedral of Saint Phillip, Gould Room – FREE
