12 Aug Director Russell Gottschalk featured in AJT’s “40 under 40”
Mazal tov to our director, Russell Gottschalk, and all the other amazing, young Jewish professionals who were featured this week in the Atlanta Jewish Times’s “40 under 40” list.
An Emory alum (’07 BA Film and Music) and native of Atlanta, Russell Gottschalk is the full time director and founder of AJMF (Atlanta Jewish Music Festival). In 2009, Russell became inspired to start the South’s first Jewish Music Festival after spending three years with Atlanta’s successful Jewish Film Festival (AJFF). As a young Jewish professional in Atlanta, he hopes AJMF will engage and unify our Jewish community, creating a unique forum for interaction our region has yet to experience. Russell manages AJMF’s day to day operations including: building community partnerships, meeting community leaders, soliciting artists and venues, managing AJMF’s human resources, seeking out development opportunities and engaging AJMF’s fan base through myriad social media networks.
