Congregation Ahavas Achim



Congregation Ahavas Achim has been a part of Newburyport since March 9, 1896. We are a welcoming Jewish Community whose goal is to educate and inspire individuals and families to actively participate in Jewish Life, Torah study, prayer, acts of kindness and the performance of Mitzvot. We are an extremely diverse community and we welcome families and individuals from all backgrounds. We extend a special welcome to interfaith families. Observing Jewish Rituals in both a traditional and spiritually meaningful way is central  to our practice here at Ahavas Achim. 

Please join us for Shabbat Davening every Saturday morning at 9:00am. The prayers and Torah Reading are led each week by Rabbi Avi Poupko. Our 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! All are welcome! 



A "Chanukah style" dinner will be served, menorahs will be lit, horahs will be danced, a video will be watched and a "Maccabee Swap" will be played!

New this year - The Maccabee Swap!
How it works:    Bring a wrapped tchotchke (a chance to re-gift something you no longer want) or an inexpensive or gag gift of under $10.  You can bring one gift per family or one for each family member.  Each gift will be entered into the swap for $5 and earn you a chance to choose a new gift.  Laughter and gift poaching are all part of the fun.  This will be our fundraising event for the evening, so please join in!


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