On Tuesday, the official JCC Maccabi Torch made its way to Sandy Springs City Hall where it ran into an iconic figure to the city…Mayor Paul!

Elected Sandy Springs mayor in November 2013, Russell K. (Rusty) Paul brings more than 40 years of federal, state and local public policy and public administration experience to the job. He is currently serving his second term.

Mayor Paul has deep connections to the Jewish Community of Greater Atlanta. He has strong ties with the area Synagogues and Rabbis in the community. He is thrilled and proud that the JCC Maccabi Games are coming to Atlanta!
