Achim is dedicated to developing a strong Jewish identity in the Jewish Russian speaking population. Achim is a non-profit organization located in Baltimore, Maryland. It helps Jews from the former Soviet Union restore and recconect with pride to their Jewish heritage and traditions. Kehillas Achim is The Congregation of Russian Jews with Rabbi Paysach Diskind.
Achim is Hebrew for brothers or siblings. We call ourselves Achim because the driving force of Achim is the understanding that all Jews are siblings to each other. We are brothers and sisters, all children of the same Father who have an inherent responsibility to one another.
