The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

This past weekend, the synagogue honored two longtime members and supporters of the shul, Vivienne Kalman and Saul Aronow.

The festivities began with a special kiddush on shabbos that was attended by friends & family of the honorees and the congregation.

A catered Gala Breakfast with over 80 guests was held on Sunday morning. Heartfelt words of admiration, gratitude, and love were shared by family and friends. It was a wonderful tribute and a well-deserved honor.

Thank you to Beri Gilfix and the Tribute Weekend committee for all their hard work in organizing this terrific event.
