PARTIAL STORE SALES GO TO CHARITY
ModernTribe will continue its practice of giving back. Last year, as a result of Thanksgivukkah sales, ModernTribe was able to donate $20,000 to MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, a national nonprofit organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds. This year, ModernTribe is partnering with over a dozen Atlanta non-profits to giveback 10% of store sales to their organizations. A list of benefiting organizations can be found online at http://moderntribe.com/pages/locals .
“ModernTribe’s mission is to offer creative products that help modern Jews to express their faith and keep our traditions alive, meaningful and fun." says Rivlin Roberts. “As the only permanent public Jewish presence in Downtown Atlanta, we are proud and excited to be celebrating Hanukkah with our downtown neighbors.”
A NEW BRICK AND MORTAR STORE IN ATLANTA
In June of this year, ModernTribe opened its brick and mortar store on historic Auburn Avenue in Downtown Atlanta, on Atlanta’s new streetcar line. Currently the store is nearly 100% dedicated to Hanukkah except for a small “end cap” of Christmas items for its non-Jewish customers. “We thought it would be fun and funny to give our non-Jewish shoppers a little taste of what it is like for a Jewish person during Christmas in America,” says Rivlin Roberts. “Really, it is to better serve the neighborhood, whose residents are mostly not Jewish and shop with us for their Jewish friends or because they connect to their Old Testament, enjoy Hebrew, or appreciate Jewish culture.”
ModernTribe’s store is located at 171 Auburn Avenue NE, Suite G, Atlanta, GA 30303 and is open daily from 11-6pm. Directions and parking information can be found on the website.
ModernTribe brings fresh, design-forward and trendy Jewish gifts and Judaica to the new Jewish generation online at ModernTribe.com (since 2007) and, since June of 2014, at its brick and mortar store in Atlanta, GA.
