The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Our dear friend Yechiel Robinson is leaving this week to begin his graduate studies in Chemistry at Stony Brook University.

We wish Yechiel our best as he embarks on this new chapter in his life.  He is not only among the best layners this synagogue has ever had but he is also a good friend and we will miss him very much.

Good luck Yechiel!

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.
