The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

I just signed up to ride the Pan Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) again this year.  Last year was my first year and it was an amazing and memorable experience. 

As some of you may know, the PMC raises funds to help the fight against cancer.  By supporting the Jimmy Fund, the PMC help develop better treatment and fosters cutting-edge research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

If you would like to support this cause please visit:


For the past two year, the Adams Street Kids have participated in the Newton Kids PMC Ride.  I look forward to another team of enthusiastic and motivated kids to ride this year too.

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.
