Welcome to Achim
The Jewish people need connection; both a connection to Hashem as well as to each other, now more than ever.
Achim is building a community-wide learning network for all members of our Jewish community in order to deepen their relationship with Hashem and deepen their relationship with each other.
Achim hopes to redefine what a class is. We believe that a class is not merely a place to learn, it is a place to connect with a small chevra, a small community of people who care about each other.
At Achim, we passionately believe that building strong and enduring relationships is the way to build a healthy supportive community. Through innovative and exciting classes, individualized study sessions, community-wide learning projects, Shabbat hospitality, and popular community dinners, we will build an environment where the members feel they belong to the community and the community belongs to them.
Whatever age or background, all Jews can find a welcome home at Achim, where the beauty, sophistication and relevance of Torah tradition is introduced with eloquence, humor and passion in a way that brings Jews of all walks of life together to form true friendships.
Please consider joining one of our programs. We are confident that you will find it a meaningful experience.
