Congregation Ahavas Achim
New Membership Group
We have recently added a new membership group for those who live 50 or more miles from Westfield. Click here to join us.
Services and Events: Please join us via Zoom until further notice. Cantor Reaboi sends out Zoom invitations prior to each service or event.
Congregation Ahavas Achim will be holding a short, ten-minute service every Friday, called the Refu'ah Group. Every Friday at 1pm, 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/

Adult, Teen, and Family Education Programs
We also offer periodic education programs for both adults and the whole family, typically with a potluck meal and Havdalah services and a study session.
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. We also have periodic programs and get-togethers for the congregation’s teens. Members of all ages get together once a month to cook and serve at the Westfield Soup Kitchen. Our Cantor also assists students and families who are preparing for Bar or Bat Mitzvah.To learn more, please email us email@example.com, or call us at (413)642-1797.
