Directions to Ahavas Achim

We are a diverse,
welcoming Jewish community
affiliated with the
Reconstructionist Movement.


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.

Special Request - Do you have exterior photographs of our building? If you do, we'd like to post them on our home page slide show. Please eMail CAA Web Manager with details.



FYI - Special Notice

Prayer Works - Thank you for the Mi Shebeyrachs over the past week. I am slowing returning to my normal levels and hope to see folks at shut in the near future. Elliott
