The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Hello- Welcome to the President's Log- I would like to take a few minutes to thank the members of the Adams Street Shul for finalizing the elections on 11 August 2011.  Your new elected officers will work hard to  make the shul the number one place to be this upcoming year.  Stay tuned because you will hear a lot from us this year.

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.

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.
