The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Despite riding 25 miles in the morning as part of my training for the Pan-Mass Challenge, playing (and winning) a softball game in Wellesley, and then coordinating the sporting events for my son's 8th birthday party.....I attended last night's performance by the Zamir Chorale of Boston at Sanders Theatre in Cambridge.


It was amazing.  It was a gala concert for Israel's 60th birthday and it was beautiful.  Yasher koach to our own members, Jordan Lee Wagner (bass) and Sarah Boling (alto) who are members of the Zamir Chorale!

A Modern Community

We hope you will visit us when you visit Boston. If you live here, we hope you will participate in our educational classes, religious services, and holiday celebrations.
