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!

  • AD JOURNAL & LUNCHEON UPDATE By now everyone should have received the mailings for the Ad Journal & Luncheon honoring Sara and Andrew Klein. If you haven't received your mailing, please immediately call Arnell in the shul office (see the side bar for numbers & email). This year we are moving into high tech and preparing a virtual journal as well as the printed Journal. You will want to get your ad copy in as soon as possible to be part of this new and exciting Journal. Remember we are honoring a very special family. Sara and Andrew Klein are part of the Founding Families of Congregation Ahavath Achim. Sara and Andrew were the first celebrants of a simcha (their son, Alan's Bar Mitzvah) here at our Stratfield Road building and they have worked diligently and tirelessly on so many different committees since then. They have worked successfully to raise the funds to operate our synagogue, helping to create and manage programming for the enjoyment of all our members, including dinners, bake sales, dances, art auctions, and car raffles. You name it, Sara and Andrew worked on it. Now it's our turn to show our appreciation and respect and make this Journal the biggest and best ever. Send in your ad - make it a full page, at least - get your friends and family together to join in and write up your appreciation for all the hard work over many, many years that our honorees have given to support our shul. Let's reach our goal of $30,000 together and quickly and we can be very proud of our loyalty and dignity for our synagogue.

  • MEZUZAH CHECKING  Mezuzot need to be checked every few years due to damage from water, heat, and ink fading or cracking over time. Rabbi Moldovan is a trained Sofer and will be available to check Mezuzot on Sunday June 26. Mezuzot can be dropped off to be checked at the Annual Meeting and can be picked up later in the day. This is a great opportunity to ensure that your Mezuzot are kosher. Price is $10/Mezuzah.

  • PROGRESS WITH BUILDING CONTENTS  This committee needs more help from our shul members to clear away articles left in the Hillel Annex that need to be disposed of without it costing a lot of money.  Please call the chairperson, Sara Klein, to offer your help in this important effort to clear our building of unusable stuff.  A few hours of your time will go a long way to helping conserve our money and our building. Sara can be reached either by calling her directly (203-374-9365) or the shul office (203-372-6529).  Please volunteer your help now, while you are reading this request.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.!
