Unrolling the Torah Scroll during Simchat Torah

We welcome Jewish individuals, Jewish families, interfaith families, and others exploring Jewish life and practice. We live by the belief that all people are created in the image of God. We’re also friendly… Just ask!

Decorating the Sukkah during Covid

Join us as we strive to maximize opportunities for Jews in the Greater Taunton Area to participate in Jewish communal life.

Why not be a part of our work to live up to God’s call to “be a light to the nations.” Moving into the 21st century, you, too, could engage the centuries-old vast Jewish moral, spiritual and philosophical tradition, undergirded by the profound teachings of Torah (study), Avodah (worship), and Gemilut Hasadim (behaving righteously).

Our Centennial Celebration

Come find your place in a Family of Friends that enjoys being together for many reasons and on varied occasions.

Become part of a community providing meaningful worship services, strong religious education, community mitzvah projects and opportunities for fostering Jewish friendships and social life.

All ages enjoyed our annual Community Potluck Seder – members, guests, newcomers – all joined in. Not too long and totally satisfying.

We’ve changed as the world has changed. Originating as an Orthodox congregation in the early 1900’s, with women sitting in the balcony, transitioning to being a part of the Conservative movement, and now an unaffiliated Jewish congregation addressing the current trends in Jewish family life. While not officially affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, we have been Reform in style and practice since the early 2000’s. We welcome people from diverse back- grounds to participate in upholding a strong Jewish presence in the center of southeastern Massachusetts.

We look forward to getting to know you better.  Please don’t hesitate to Contact Us to explore the opportunities for joining our Family of Friends at Congregation Agudath Achim.
