Welcome to Congregation Ahavath Achim

Congregation Ahavath Achim is a warm, suburban, Modern Orthodox synagogue, affiliated with the Orthodox Union. We are located in scenic Fairfield, Connecticut, just one hour from New York City, with easy access via either the Merritt Parkway or I-95, Amtrak or MetroNorth. A short drive will bring you to nearby beaches, marinas, parks, historical sites, nature centers and museums. We experience the changing seasons of a New England town but also enjoy all the conveniences of being within easy commuter distance of New York. Visitors to our community are always welcome!

Announcements July 3-10, 2015

Weekly Announcements

  • Summer Schedule Has Begun: From May 1 until the Fall, mincha will be at 7:00 pm every Friday evening. This change is made each Spring to enable everyone to have Shabbat dinner at a reasonable hour on Friday nights.
  • Pre-Mincha Shabbat Shiur: Please join us at 7:25pm for a pre-Mincha shiur. Learn a little, pray a little, and eat a little at Seudah Sh’lishit. It doesn’t get much better than this!

  • The Fast of Tammuz (Shivah Asar B'Tammuz) is on Sunday, July 5th.  We wish everyone an easy fast and easy day.

  • Journal Update:  It is wonderful to report that our Journal ad campaign is off to a good start with ads and lunch reservations coming into the office nicely.  If you have not yet sent in your ad and lunch reservation, please do so as soon as possible.  Sara Klein and Susan Klein are assembling a beautiful new Journal but we need lots and lots of pages to make it a financial success.  Everyone should reach out to family, friends, business associates, businesses you patronize and ask for their support.  Every ad, no matter if it is a $36 business card or a $25 personal memorial or honor will help to reach our goal of $35,000 this year.  Every dollar you raise outside the shul community is a dollar less we ask you to donate.

  • New Summer Learning Program July 5-August 24: Rabbi Ephraim Meth will be leading a new learning program every Sunday morning, for one-half hour, following Shacharit throughout the summer. The topic will be "The Halakhic Decision-Making Process Revealed: From Torah to Talmud to Today." Rabbi Meth will cover various case studies, analyzing sources in depth. The first case-study will be "Tefillah in a Tank-Top." The program is open to the community; men and women.  All the source material will be translated. The class must have a minimum attendance of 8 registered in order to run, so please call the office and register your plan to attend.

  • Tag Sale on Sunday, July 12: The next Tag Sale is scheduled for Sunday, July 12 from 9 am to 3 pm. Renee has put out a call for volunteers to cover two 3 hour shifts (9-12 and 12-3). Please call the office or Renee directly to let her know you can help cover the room on Sunday. Renee is accepting merchandise until Thursday, July 9. Costume jewelry of all kinds is a popular selling item. Household goods and furniture only sell if they are good condition. Children's furniture, toys and games are also good sellers, but only when they are fresh and complete sets. Goods that are not in good condition do not sell and cost us money to dispose of. PLEASE HELP US AND DO NOT BRING OLD AND OUT-DATED ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT, BOOKS OR CDS. THESE ITEMS DO NOT SELL.
