Welcome to Congregation Ahavas Achim
Congregation Ahavas Achim serves the Jewish community of the greater Keene area as a Jewish center. We believe in Judaism lived in balance with the world around us and strive to be a welcoming place for Jewish people in Southwestern New Hampshire. While most of the members are from the Keene area, others travel from towns like Peterborough, Antrim, and Walpole.
Jewish tradition teaches us to appreciate the variety of ways to live a Jewish life. Our community holds education for people throughout their lives as one of our ideals. A variety of education programs are available for youth and adults. We express our beliefs and our traditions through weekly communal worship, incorporating prayer, song and meditation.
We welcome all Jews, their families, and interested people to join our community in celebrating and learning Jewish tradition. Our membership reflects the diversity of the beautiful Monadnock region of New Hampshire.
