Our Mission

Congregation Agudas Achim is a sacred community committed to the egalitarian traditions and ideals of Conservative Judaism. We are guided by the principles of Torah (study), Avodah (meaningful worship), and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving-kindness). We strive to connect each generation with the values and principles of our Jewish past, the moral/ethical demands of the present, and the energy to build for a Jewish tomorrow.

​​​​​​​

Listen to our Board members, staff, and congregants tell you how Agudas can be your home.

Event Spotlight: Celebrating Israel
5/4/22

We had such a great time learning and dancing this Tuesday night at our Celebrate Israel night! Rabbi Rikki Arad taught us all about the history of Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'azmaut, how the holidays are observed and celebrated, as well as how Hebrew became the official national language of Israel. Then we were joined by Raphi Sonsino who showed us some exciting Israeli dances! We had a great turnout with lots of learning, laughing, dancing, and of course - eating some Israeli food! Thank you to everyone who joined us, and we hope you'll all join us again soon for more exciting events.

Havurot Spotlight: Social Action & Feeding San Antonio
5/1/22

Congratulations to volunteers Marcia Waldgeir, Rosalia Castro, Mauricio Mora, Freida Donzis, and Lauren Deal who spearheaded the collection of tuna and peanut butter for Feed SA! Additional thanks to Dr. Mike Ozer (not pictured) for leading the Social Action Havurah. 

Not only did the volunteers collect food donations, but they also spoke to the students at Inda Posner Religious School about how Jewish values relate to addressing food insecurity. Further discussions are planned for IPRS with Rabbi Sharon Cohen and IPRS Director Melanie Levy.
