Shul Closure Information:

Dearest Agudas Achim Family,

Our synagogue staff and leadership have been paying close attention to the rapid progression of events with the COVID-19 coronavirus. We have been in contact with JewishColumbus which created a Medical Advisory Committee comprised of local professionals to provide Columbus Jewish agencies and organizations with expert and professional guidance to navigate the difficult and complicated issues we are facing. Indeed, several of our own members are key participants on that committee.
Based on the urging of the Medical Advisory Committee, Governor DeWine’s proclamations, and community leadership input, we are following the expert recommendations that urge social distancing as one of the best ways we can avoid spreading the virus. We are sorry to report that the synagogue will be closed for at least the next three weeks for ALL services and public gatherings effective immediately. All Updates will be posted here.

Agudas Achim’s Core Values

Agudas Achim aspires to be a traditional, egalitarian, friendly and participatory congregation.

  • Traditional – seeking meaning in Jewish tradition, and building on that tradition to create meaning for ourselves. Our members are inspired by traditions that connect us with our congregation’s history and with other Jews around the world.

  • Egalitarian – supporting and encouraging our members, in all their diversity, to participate fully in synagogue life.

  • Friendly – welcoming each person who appears before us, whether a traveler at morning minyan, a non-Jewish family member, a homeless person at kiddush, etc. We are a warm, close-knit, child-friendly community.

  • Participatory – engaging members so every member contributes, everyone is needed and everyone feels valued. We recognize our differences create opportunities for, rather than barriers to participation.
