The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

ImageIn support of Israel, the Adams Street Shul presents "From Sadness to Redemption"; Saturday, July 29th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.

All across America, synagogues, summer camps, and yeshivot are making each hour of each of The Nine Days meaningful. The OU has organized a program of "Round-the-Clock Learning Minyans" for Israel! The Adams Street Shul is participating, and our assigned hour of study is this Saturday, July 29th, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

The title of our one-hour program is "From Sadness to Redemption."   Rabbi Weinberg and three congregants will each be making 15-minute educational presentations.

This is an official part of the OU's Nine Days of Learning program; we are listed on their calendar.   We guaranteed the OU at least a minyan of ten individuals learning Torah in this time of crisis for Israel and her people.  Please join us to help support Israel and to learn.

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.
