Welcome To Congregation Agudath Achim In Bradley Beach.
Congregation Agudath Achim was established in the 1920's as an orthodox synagogue and remains so today. This shul is open during the winter if we get a Minyan, between Memorial Day and Labor Day and for the High Holidays, and caters to the full time Bradley Beach residents as well as the many summer visitors who come here to enjoy the beautiful scenery and relaxing weekends Bradley Beach has to offer. All are welcome and encouraged to join in on the Shabbat services, as well as partake in the delicious Kiddush and Seuda Shlishit here at Agudath Achim.
If you will be in the area and want to join us (when it is not the Summer Season) please call the office at 732-774-2495 to make sure there is a Minyan.
Bradley Beach is the place to be for fun in the sun!
Join us this Shabbat and Every Shabbat through Simchat Torah!!!
Upcoming Torah Dedication and Fantastic Mitzvah Opportunity
Agudath Achim has two Sifrei Torah that we recently had repaired and computer-checked and are once again kosher. A Torah dedication ceremony will take place at the end of the summer when we welcome the arrival of the new Torahs with appropriate pomp and festivity.
We are pleased to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to a generous benefactor who would like to dedicate a Sefer Torah to our shul for a donation amount significantly lower than what it would cost to have a new one written. The Shul will provide a Torah cover inscribed with the information you provide, such as, honoring or in memory of a loved one or an event that you would like to have memorialized.
Torah bids will be accepted via email to the shul address: firstname.lastname@example.org or via snail mail to Agudath Achim PO Box 187 Bradley Beach, NJ. All bids must be written, no verbal bids will be accepted. The minimum bid for dedicating one of the two Sifrei Torah is $10,000. The dedication will be awarded to the highest bidder.
A sofer will be present to complete the writing of the Torah. For a more modest donation, each congregant will have the opportunity to have a letter written in the Sefer Torah in their honor.
The Torah forbids discarding holy objects by throwing them into the trash. Some objects always have kedusha and must be placed in shaimos.
The shul is collecting Shaimos to be buried in Agudath Achim Cemetery as a memorial to Harry and Elaine Cohen who will be reburied in Israel this August. The family has requested that Shaimos be buried in the already existing plots.
Long-time Bradley Beach residents and friends remember the Cohen Family fondly. For many years the special Cohanim Nigun was a part of all the Holiday services at Agudath Achim.
Anyone who has Shaimos is welcome to bring them to the Shul for collection. The Shul has made arrangements with Bloomfield-Cooper who is handling the details for the Cohen family.
There is no set fee for the Shamos Drop-Off. Donations are always welcome.
All Shaimos MUST be brought to the Shul no later than Thursday August 9, 2018.
