Temple Kol Emeth of Marietta recently honored Renae Marx Popkin for her outstanding volunteerism. TKE named Popkin and two others, Ira Wajsman and David Kimmel,
“Lights of TKE.” The Avodah Evening of Honor banquet was conducted at the Georgia Aquarium on April 19.
Popkin has volunteered long hours creating newsletters, an annual ad book, silent auctions and other projects and events for TKE. She has also been a strong supporter of MUST Ministries, a social services organization serving families in metro Atlanta.
This year she rode on the “Little Debbies” team for Ovarian Cycle, an annual wellness fundraiser launched in memory of her late sister-in-law, Debbie Green Flamm. For the Marx family’s 26 years of travel together, she created a book of all the family trips. She also works part-time in her family’s packaging business, Piedmont National Corp.
