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!

High Holidays 5778 – September 2017

Seating - This year, our High Holiday Services will be held at the American Legion building at Owen Fish park on Stratfield Road. We have rented the space from September 1-October 31, with option to continue through November and December. Due to the temporary nature of this year’s location, there will be NO CHARGE for High Holiday seating. Everyone is invited to join us for High Holiday Services but you must reserve in advance by calling or emailing the office. All seating must be reserved so we know how many to prepare for this year’s services. We welcome everyone but reservations are absolutely necessary.

Holiday Honors – Aliyot, Maftir, etc. – Holiday Honors will not be sold this year, also due to the temporary nature of our location. The Congregation wishes to honor the people who join with us in attending our Holiday services. Again, seat reservations are necessary so we will know whom will be in attendance and be able to share the Yom Tov with an Honor.

Yizkor Memorial Book – Will be published as in the past. Please contact Arnell as soon as possible to be sure your Memorial names are properly listed. As in previous years, the cost is $5 per name or $75 for unlimited number of names.

New Year Greetings Page - listing is $18 and is the perfect way to send your Holiday greetings to family and friends while eliminating the bother of shopping for cards, writing out addresses and postage costs.
Please print out the exact way you would like your family name to be listed (Sample: John & Mary Doe; Mr. & Mrs. John Doe; The Doe Family)
Please submit all your information and check to cover the Yiskor Memorial book and the New Year Greetings by calling Arnell at 203-372-6529 or by email to the office; office@ahavathachim.org

Thank You in advance.
