The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

I am thrilled about the addition of Yishai Ashkenazi as the new Chair of the Development Committee and of Dr. Len Berman as the new Chair of the Membership Committee.  These two individuals are core members of the kehillah and bring with them experience and enthusiasm that will help propel us forward in the year to come.

Yasher koach to Yishai and Len.  Your service to the community is much appreciated!

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.

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.
