    Mrs. Beverly Greenwald, 78, passed away Monday, April 4 in her home in Dunwoody, GA. 

    Born Beverly Jane Kogan on November 15, 1943 in Brooklyn, NY, the daughter of Harry and Annette Kogan, she grew up in Forest Hills, Queens with her older brother William.  She was married to Herbert L Greenwald from 1964 until Dr. Greenwald’s passing in 2001. 

    Mrs. Greenwald was beloved for her personal warmth and her playful sense of humor.   Her enthusiasm for relationships and conversation of every kind brought many wonderful people into her orbit.  Her dedication to the Jewish people and the State of Israel was surpassed only by her greatest pride and joy, her three children and 6 adored granddaughters. 

    Mrs. Greenwald began her Bachelor of Arts degree at Brooklyn College, NYC in 1961.  After raising her children she completed her BA in History at Mercer University in 1987.  Mrs. Greenwald then went on to intern at Jewish Family Services in Atlanta as she worked towards a Masters in Social Work at the University of Georgia, which she completed in 1991. 

    With a caseload focused on Marital, Family and Individual counseling, Mrs. Greenwald developed a special expertise guiding interfaith and observant Jewish couples through relationship challenges.  Upon becoming an LCSW she provided counseling to clients at Jewish Family Services of Atlanta and later opened her own private practice, helping people in need until her retirement in 2014. 

    Congregation Shearith Israel in Atlanta was the cherished spiritual home for her family since the 1970s, and Mrs. Greenwald served as Sisterhood President from 1981-83. 

    She is survived by her partner Dr. David Goldsmith and children Michael Greenwald, Hal Greenwald and Rebecca Ben Zvi and her beloved granddaughters Eliana, Rachel, Gabrielle, Jessica, Mika and Ayla.   

    A special message of appreciation goes to her caregiver Beverly Abraham.  Thank you for all you’ve done for mom and our family, Miss Beverly. 

    Graveside services were held Friday, April 8 at Crestlawn Cemetery, Atlanta and were officiated by Rabbi Ari Kaiman. 

    Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770.451.4999.

    I was so sorry to read of Bev's passing. I worked with Bev at JF&CS for many years. Bev was always supportive, helpful when I struggled with a client, funny, caring and honest. I have not been in touch with her since she left JF&CS, but I had fond memories of her and wish her much peace and condolences to her family.

    Beverly, first and foremost, was a dear treasure to have in my life. Very bright, articulate, outspoken woman who defended what was ethical to do in many situations in the workplace. Those who respected and valued the kind of person she was will miss her. Her devotion and care of clients is surpassed by none.
