“The team at Federation is committed, supportive, and awesome. I am very proud to receive this award alongside my colleagues,” said Orlansky, who recently joined Jewish Kids Groups’ Board, an organization which she says is very near and dear to her heart. “JKG anchored me in Atlanta after college and I grew up with the organization for nearly ten years,” she says.
Orlansky received her Bachelor’s degree in sociology and education from Georgia State University and her Master’s degree, also from Georgia State, in creative and innovative education. Married to Alex Orlansky, she says she and her husband support the BeltLine project and recently purchased their first home on the BeltLine in Grant Park.
“I love this vibrant, diverse city, which has become home after 13 years. The warmth of the Atlanta Jewish community is unmatched. I feel fortunate to work alongside so many champions for Jewish Atlanta. Receiving this award is a true honor,” said Orlansky.
