The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Mazal tov to Orit Kent and Meir Lakein on the birth of their son!

The bris will take place on Tuesday morning, January 16th. Shacharis will begin at 7:30 AM. Following the bris there will be a bagel breakfast to celebrate the simcha.

In addition, the community will coordinate meals for the Kent/Lakein family starting on Thursday (tomorrow) through to next week. If you would like to participate in this wonderful community outreach effort please contact Beth Drapkin ( or 617-969-4014). She has the information regarding meal preferences, number of people, etc...

Mazal tov!

PS There will be an overlap on Tuesday morning with the shiva minyan at the Rabbi's home. Meir has informed me that he expects many family and friends at the 7:30 AM shacharis so we should make an effort to help the shiva minyan and then join the bris simcha at the shul.
