About the Sponsor:

The Shirlye Kaufman Birnbrey AMHSI Impact Fellowship Program was created by Shirlye’s children: Jeff and Alison Kaufman, Richard (z”l) and Barbara Kaufman, Mark and Nancy Kaufman, and Karen and Craig Senf in memory of their mother, who always promoted the importance of funding Jewish schools. Born into a southern Zionist family, Shirlye’s life as a child was steeped in orthodox cultural, social, and intellectual Judaism in small town Georgia. She insisted on a strong formal Jewish education for her family and she adhered to her own strong beliefs by participation in and funding of many Jewish institutions. She was blessed with a wonderful life intertwined with a generous spirit. This fund allows her children to continue this legacy for future generations of Jews and the advancement of Jewish culture.

The Atlanta Impact Fellowship was also made possible by a grant from The JNF Boruchin Israel Education and Advocacy Center.
