Meet Esther Esther has always advocated for those without voice or representation, first as a public defender in Miami and Fulton County and later in private practice, assisting victims of domestic violence and Boy Scout abuse. Her passion for public service traces back to childhood when she lobbied the Florida Legislature to add seat belts in school buses. More recently, she was on the front lines in the battle to overturn Georgia's draconian treatment of survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

After the only Jewish state legislator decided not to seek re-election, she knew it was time to seek office. ‍ With antisemitism on the rise throughout the country, representation matters.

Esther is a mom of three, having raised her college-age kids alongside her husband Roger, in Sandy Springs. Miriam, Ben and Jacob were educated locally at The Epstein School, St. Francis in Milton and North Springs High School. Her husband of 23 years is just ending his two-year presidency at Congregation Bnai Torah. Esther is the third of four active generations of Hadassah members and associates.
