Congregation Ahavas Achim serves the Jewish community of the greater Keene area as a Jewish center. We believe in a Judaism lived in balance with the world around us and strive to be a welcoming place for Jewish people in southwestern New Hampshire.
While most of the members are from the Keene are, others travel from towns like Peterborough, Antrim, and Walpole. Jewish tradition teaches us to appreciate the variety of ways to live a Jewish life.
Our community holds education for people throughout their lives as one of our ideals. Prayer, song, meditation, and communal worship are some of the ways in which our community prides itself. Through a variety of approaches including lectures, discussions, artistic presentations, and communal gatherings, the members of Congregation Ahavas Achim continue to explore Judaism in a multiplicity of ways.
