The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Their symptoms proscar generic compared with 30 percent.

Amy Golahny is a former congregant who now lives in Pennsylvania.  Amy Golahny's father lives in Newton and is a current member of the Shul.  In his nineties, he has become home-bound and is no longer able to attend Shul events.  (His granddaughter was married here at Adams Street five years ago.)

Rabbi Weinberg had been visiting him at home until recently.  Given the Rabbi's retirement and the fact that he is spending more time in Israel, the Rabbi is no longer able to continue the weekly visits.  We are looking for a volunteer or volunteers who would be interested and willing to assume the mitzvah of visiting this gentleman at home.  He would very much like to receive visits from a Shul member. 

If you are interested, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to give you his contact information.

Reminder to all who use The Nonantum Eruv that it's the time of year to support it if you can. 

Although the Greater Boston Eruv Corporation conducts the weekly inspection for us, the Adams Street Shul pays for this service, and we also pay directly the electrician who makes the repairs.

Most people don't think of The Nonantum Eruv as a weekly event, but providing it is very much a weekly project of our congregation. Just as we work behind the scenes to provide a Kiddush, a Third Meal, and a Torah Reader, so too do we maintain the eruv from our Shul's funds.

Every Thursday afternoon, two specially trained employees inspect the entire boundary of our eruv and call in repair orders. We have an electrician on retainer, standing by with a bucket truck every Friday, to make any needed repairs. 

Finally, the status message (which you can see on our website and hear at 781-446-9797 on Friday afternoons) is updated.  This process ensures that our eruv is "up" almost every Sabbath.

The Adams Street Synagogue offers sponsorship of The Nonantum Eruv each Shabbos for only $54. Sponsoring this weekly service of the shul is an opportunity to honor an individual, memorialize a loved one, or celebrate a simcha

The eruv is much appreciated, as it encourages more people to participate in our Shabbat services and to join our community. 

If you've enjoyed bring anything to or from the Shul on the Sabbath, or to each other's homes, please make an eruv donation now by clicking here.

Bert Grand at the Shul Centennial Red Sox OutingWe hope you have enjoyed the pleasant socializing each week after Shabbat morning services. Have you ever wondered how the shul manages to provide the kiddush even on weeks when it has not been sponsored? 

The Grand Family Kiddush Fund sponsors the kiddush whenever no one else has.  Even if you cannot sponsor a kiddush on your own, small donations in any amount are always welcome.  Simply designate that your donation is for The Grand Family Kiddush Fund. 

It's a nice way to honor someone, celebrate a simcha, or memorialize a loved one.  You can donate online now.
