Sarah Bernstein has a one child, Harper, age 11 and they attend The Temple. She attended Eastern Michigan University.
You will find Bernstein working on the PAL program, Atlanta’s only Jewish Big Brother/ Big sisters’ organization. She helps to match Bigs (young professionals) and Littles (kids 5-16) and oversee the relationships. She helps create events such as Mitzvah Day and Havinagala, a fundraiser that supports the PAL Program. Most recently she helped launch a Family Volunteer Program at JF&CS that brings families with young children together to work on volunteer projects that support JF&CS programs.
When Bernstein is not working, you can find her on the BeltLine with her daughter, who is most certainly her number one volunteer.
“I’m very lucky that I get to give my daughter a front row seat of what volunteering looks like.
“One of my favorite things about my job is helping people get connected with Jewish Atlanta. I love watching young professionals start their Jewish volunteer journey with JF&CS and other amazing organizations in Atlanta. … I take great pride in all the things we have to offer for those looking to do good in the community.
“I’m very honored to be part of the 2022 40 Under 40. I look forward to this article each year. It’s very exciting to always read about all the wonderful people in our community and now I get to be on the list! I truly love the work I do and can’t wait to continue to make more of an impact in Atlanta. This recognition has inspired me to do even greater things for our wonderful city and the Atlanta Jewish community,” said Bernstein.
