The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

It is with great pride and joy that we welcome Rabbi Avinoam Durani and his family back from Israel. Avinoam recently received smicha (rabbinic ordination) in Israel from both former Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu and Rabbi Dr. Razon Arusi, a leading Yeminite rabbi. Chazak u'varuch! This week's kiddush was sponsored by the Sloane and Drapkin families in celebration of Avinoam's achievement and with prayers for peace in Israel.
