Holidays and Events
Congregation Ahavas Achim
Services and Events:
Congregation Ahavas Achim has continued to provide the meal on the first Thursday of every month at Our Community Table, 101 Meadow St., Westfield. Since the onset of Covid-19, we have been preparing brown bag "grab and go" meals, and are looking for volunteers to provide sandwiches, snacks, or beverages. Please be aware that it is not necessary to enter the building. For further information regarding the monthly soup kitchen, please contact Sandy at 413-262-4564 or firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer time and/or food.
Also, in keeping with our tradition, we will be providing a take-out version of our usual Christmas dinner, and are looking for volunteers to cook (in your own home is fine) and assemble take-out containers. Monetary contributions are also gratefully accepted. The meal will be served at 4:30 pm on 12/25/2022. Please see our most recent Newsletter (link above) for details about how you can help.

Ahavas Achim holds a variety of holiday services including a community Passover Seder, a family-oriented Sukkot celebration, High Holy Days services, a Hanukkah party, and a Purim celebration.
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.
We also assist 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.
