The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

On Sunday, August 13th, Malkie and Rabbi Zalman Gurkow hosted friends and family from all over Massachusetts and as far away as California at their home in Westford on the occasion of Mushkie's bat-mitzvah. It was a wonderful outdoor event and the bat-mitzvah girl delivered a wonderful speech.

Mazal tov to the entire Gurkow family!!
