About Us @ NTS

New Toco Shul is an intellectually diverse synagogue in the Toco Hill community of Atlanta, GA. We pride ourselves on offering learning opportunities that represent the spectrum of Orthodoxy. Our shul is a warm and welcoming place where everyone knows your name.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our Merger with Netzach Israel

Kol Yisrael represents the merged synergies of two existing shuls, each with their own special strengths.

Congregation Netzach Israel brings with it an established reputation for executing excellent communal programming, including Shabbat meals and holiday carnivals, as well as Shabbat parasha classes, a Hebrew Sunday school, and twenty years of experience.

New Toco Shul brings diverse and interesting Torah classes, stable and serious prayer services - including Atlanta’s only vatikin shacharit minyan - which continues to attract locals and visitors year-round.

Both congregations bring with them a core of dedicated members and supporters who have proven themselves, time and again, willing and ready to do the hard work necessary to build a new vision of Jewish community in Atlanta. The excitement and energy accompanying the merger and the new, enticing space will allow Kol Yisrael to build upon what these two existing shuls already do so well in a variety of areas.

Our Rabbi @ NTS

Rabbi Dr. Don Seeman is the rabbi of the New Toco Shul. He is also an associate professor of Religion and Jewish Studies at Emory University, and was involved with our shul from the beginning. Before moving to Atlanta he lived and taught in Jerusalem, was a Wexner Fellow and earned a PhD in Social Anthropology. Rabbi Seeman wants the shul to be known for its kindness, its commitment to serious and open-minded Torah Study represented by a variety of different voices across the Orthodox spectrum, its Vatikin minyan, and its friendly, thoughtful approach to Religious Zionism and Modern Orthodoxy.
