Congregation Agudas Achim is a sacred community committed to the egalitarian traditions and ideals of Conservative Judaism. We are guided by the principles of Torah (study), Avodah (meaningful worship), and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness).We strive to connect each generation with the values and principles of our Jewish past, the moral/ethical demands of the present, and the energy to build for a Jewish tomorrow.
The founders named it Agudas Achim gathering of the brethren. Our synagogue was chartered on November 29, 1889, but must have been organized prior to that date. We were an orthodox congregation, founded in the midst of the great Transatlantic Migration of Jews from Eastern Europe, and an outgrowth of an earlier informal organization of traditional Jews of San Antonio.
Today with Rabbi Jeffrey Abraham and Rabbi Richards as its spiritual leader, Agudas Achim celebrates its present and looks ahead to a brilliant future, while recalling 12 decades of growth and achievement.
