The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

It is hard to believe that it is already Thanksgiving 2007.  Time seems to be flying by.  Just the other day I was at a meeting at the medical school and I noticed it was SNOWING!

In any event, I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a wonderful and happy thanksgiving with your families and friends.   Enjoy the good food, the good company....and some....football!

A Historic Shul

The Adams Street Shul is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We are now in our second century of service to the Jewish community.

Part of our mission is to preserve and maintain this historic building, with the help of many supportive friends.
