Healing Service
Congregation Ahavas Achim will be holding a short, ten-minute service every Friday, called the Refu'ah Group. Every Friday at 1 pm, Cantor Colman Reaboi will go live on Facebook and ask members and the greater community to participate. We will share the names of friends and loved ones, do special readings and prayers for healing. We will also recite the Kaddish for anyone who has a Yahrzeit. 

This weekly Refuah Group can be viewed on Facebook Live on Congregation Ahavas Achim’s Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/AhavasAchimWestfield/live/

Our family programs are designed for family members of all generations. They focus on a variety of themes and often incorporate storytelling and arts and crafts.
