The Agudas Achim Social Action Committee led by Dr. Michael Ozer, has planned a year of programming around Sustainability. Each month has been given a theme: Upcycling, rain, animals, light and electricity, recycling, plants, bugs, water, and fire. The committee has come up with programs, events, educational initiatives, and curriculum for school aged students, too. Be sure to be on the lookout for events and programs scheduled through the Agudas Achim Facebook page or weekly emails.

This year, the Inda Posner Religious School (IPRS) will begin in mid-October during the holiday of Sukkot. Connection to community, developing a Jewish identity, Hebrew reading skills, Jewish studies, and prayer are integral parts of learning while using the Institute of Southern Jewish Life’s curriculum and program development by Agudas Achim’s Clergy and Education Director. For 8th-10th graders, we will offer a bi-monthly course with Rabbi Cohen and Rabbi Richards and a once per month class for 11th & 12th graders. For more questions please contact Samantha Mazuz at s.mazuz@agudas-achim.org.
