Congregation Ahavas Achim



Congregation Ahavas Achim has been a part of Newburyport since March 9, 1896. We are a welcoming Jewish Community which strives to educate and inspire individuals and families to participate actively in prayer, Torah study, Jewish Life experience, and the performance of Mitzvot. We are an extremely diverse community and we welcome families and individuals from all backgrounds. We seek to enrich the lives of our community members, contribute to the continued vitality of the Jewish People, and we commit ourselves to Gemilus Chassadim―acts of kindness.

Please join us for Shabbos Davening every Saturday morning at 9:00am. The tefilot  and Torah Reading are led each week by Rabbi Avi Poupko. The Torah Reading is      characterized with lively discussion, questions and insights on the weekly Torah            Portion. Services are always followed by a beautiful Kiddush. Please join us!

Observing Jewish Rituals in both a traditional and spiritually meaningful way is central  to our practice here at Ahavas Achim. 

Please check our CALENDAR for all our upcoming events, programs, Adult Ed classes and services.
