Biographical / Historical

The Berman family patriarch, Israel Berman, emigrated from his home town of Grodno, Poland, in 1888 and settled in Camilla, Georgia. He became a naturalized citizen in 1892 and soon the Berman family spread throughout the entire southern United States. Every year the family would have a reunion, which was organized by Beryl Weiner. This collection of family history was organized by Beryl Weiner before his passing in 2014.

Beryl Weiner was born on Dec. 29, 1931, in Camilla, Georgia to Louis and Fannie Berman Weiner and moved to Atlanta at the age of 9 after the death of his father. After graduating from boys High, he went to the University of Georgia and received an A.B. degree in 1954 and law degree in 1955. He lettered in tennis, received a music scholarship, and was honored in the Omicron Delta Kappa and Gridiron Societies, a member and president of the Phi Epsilon Pi social fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha music fraternity, and president of the Interfraternity Council at the University of Georgia. Upon graduation, he received a commission in the Army and after active service was honorably discharged with the rank of First Lieutenant. Having admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 1957, he became a member of the Atlanta Bar Association and the Lawyers Club of Atlanta and was a founding member of the law firm Weiner, Yancey, Dempsey, and Diggs as well as an Assistant Fulton Attorney General. Confirmed at The Temple, he later served on their Board of Trustees. He was a president of the Southern Jewish Historical Society. He prepared a family history and genealogical charts for his family and wife’s family that can be found at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum.
