Harris Jacobs Dream Run

The Harris Jacobs Dream Run was created more than 20 years ago to serve our community with a fun, active, and family-friendly event that honors the memory of a past president of the MJCCA and influential member of the Atlanta Jewish community, Harris Jacobs. Proceeds support the Blonder Family Department for Special Needs, a unique and welcoming home where individuals of all backgrounds and abilities can socialize, learn, grow, and deepen their connections to one another and the community.
