Congregation Agudat Achim

Spiritual Practice

Prayer at Congregation Agudat Achim is a warm, communal experience. The services are conducted by our rabbi and members of the synagogue, many of whom participate on a regular basis.

The Congregation Agudat Achim minyan Zoom room has no passcode and most evenings hold a committee meeting or an Adult Education course offered immediately following the evening minyan. Join us for all minyanim and events by clicking the link here:

On Shabbat mornings, we cannot meet via Zoom due to Halakhic restrictions on electronics. However, we are able to bring you automatic Livestream services via YouTube. Subscribe to our YouTube channel here to follow when our stream goes live each Shabbat morning. Ed and Mike Pletman generously donated our Livestream camera system, in loving memory of their parents, Doris and Robert Pletman.
