Congregation Agudas Achim Hosts Open House


Are you interested in learning more about options for Jewish culture, life, and education in the Attleboro area? Congregation Agudas Achim invites you to stop by during its annual Open House on Sunday, Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Visitors will have an opportunity to meet Rabbi Leora Abelson and Annette Lawson, the education coordinator, who will both be available to answer questions and provide information about the community and the Hebrew School. Current members will also be on hand. Refreshments will be served, and a themed craft activity will be available for children. The synagogue’s band, Briskets and Gravy, will perform at 11 a.m.

Agudas Achim is thoughtful, and vibrant community committed to lifelong learning and social action. The Hebrew School offers classes for students from kindergarten through grade 8. The goal is to create a community for members of all ages that provides a gateway to Jewish living and offers a comfortable, warm, and inviting experience for all. Congregation Agudas Achim integrates religious, social and educational programs to enable every member to become a learner and every learner a teacher.

Members and Hebrew school staff will be available to discuss the school curricula and the nationally recognized Shabbat B’Yachad (Shabbat Together) program, designed to join the school with the larger synagogue community. This program includes Friday evening community potlucks, arts and music, intergenerational learning, and prayer and a Saturday morning service at a local farm.

Congregation Agudas Achim includes members from southeastern Massachusetts and northern R.I. and is affiliated with the Reconstructionist movement.

Synagogue membership and enrollment in Hebrew School are ongoing. For more information, contact the synagogue at or 508-222-2243, or visit
