New Toco Shul (NTS) 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.

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.
