Come discover the pleasures of rewarding relationships with your fellow congregants and closer ties to Agudas Achim through Men’s Club membership. We are an affiliate of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs and are proud that two of our members are Seaboard Region officers.
Our activities include the presentation of Humashim to our B’nai Mitzvah, stimulating Sunday brunches, distributing yahrzeit candles in remembrance of those who perished in the Holocaust, and financial support for our teenagers to go to Israel. We provide important services to the congregation such as grilling at the annual barbecues, scheduling of ushers for the high holidays, and building the sukkah. Our events such as Mom’s Day Outs and outings to Nationals games will be of interest to our younger men in the congregation and their families.
Our service projects include a Mitzvah Corps service team, and Christmas day volunteering at Alexandria Hospital.
