About Congregation Agudat Achim
Our synagogue is a friendly place. We may be smaller than synagogues in larger cities but this enables us to be that much more welcoming to everybody in our community. Nobody is taken for granted and our support for others in times of both joy and sadness is untiring. Interfaith families are welcome.
Our yearly calendar is filled with special events; luncheons, and many other social gatherings. We have adult education programs as well as a tuition-free Hebrew school. All of these serve to bring us together as a community; sooner or later you realize there is nobody you haven’t met.
