Etz Aviv

The Etz Aviv group is comprised of working women, in and out of the home, who enjoy fantastic friendship and fun. The group draws from the North as well as from East and West Cobb areas. These include Marietta, Woodstock, Kennesaw, Acworth, Canton and even one member from Dallas, GA. We meet late Sunday mornings or in the evening, except for our noontime nosh book club, which meets at 10 am. For information on Etz Aviv membership, contact Naomi Binenfeld at or Judy Epstein at
