Over the last four years, the AJT has been invited into more than 70 homes and art studios belonging to members of Atlanta’s Jewish community. Behind mezuzah-clad entries, we have discovered majestic views of our “City in a Forest,” personality-infused interiors and masterful architecture.
Marcia Caller Jaffe’s Chai Style column grants readers a peek inside inspiring spaces captured by local photographers, Duane Stork and Laurie Sermos. Showcasing a diverse collection of houses, Jaffe’s column consistently portrays Jewish Atlantans’ “passion to carry out one’s personal style.” Each Chai Style Home or Art story includes an interview so that we may learn about the inhabitants of magazine-worthy homes and the creators of innovative sculptures and original paintings.
On Oct. 28, Carrla and Jeff Goldstein reopened their home to the AJT for our first “Where Hollywood Meets South Beach” Chai Style affair. The Goldstein home, described by Jaffe as a “4-acre contemporary Mediterranean manse in Sandy Springs,” served as a dramatic venue for AJT’s celebration. Catered by A Kosher Touch and Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits, the event enabled the AJT to thank community members for allowing us to feature their residences and artwork in the paper.
