Part of our mission is to provide our members with a spiritual home, but we know that attending services is not for everyone, and that's okay. At Congregation Agudas Achim, we believe it's important to offer adults other ways to get involved.
The men's group has been running strong for about 5 years now. The guys plan a social outing quarterly. They do the usual things like bowling and playing pool, but they have also taken archery lessons, gone on a river cruise, and spent a memorable evening learning to curl!

The first men's group event for 2017-2018 is scheduled for Saturday, October 28, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at the BreakTime Bowl.
The "Women's Group," not to be confused with your mother's Sisterhood, gets together four or five times a year. Wine is often involved. Members of the group have attended a Paint Night, engaged in a private yoga session taught by one of our members, visited the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, and met for snacks (and wine) to catch up with each other. There's no set agenda, but it's always have fun.

Love the liturgy and like to sing? The synagogue choir might be just the place for you. The choir practices monthly, more often before the high holidays or important events. Our choir isn't your typical "performance-oriented" choir. It serves as a vehicle to keep the congregation singing. While some pieces are learned to share with an audience, the choir invites participation from the congregation during services. We've found that with more of us singing, services are much more meaningful.

Our informal singing group is a recent addition to our social groups. It's geared toward individuals who don't necessarily want to participate in services, but enjoy getting together to sing. There's some crossover with our choir.

The band enhances holidays such as Simchat Torah, Shabbat Shira, and Chanukah by playing all types of Jewish music, from Klezmer to liturgical to modern Israeli songs. We usually rehearse a few times before each performance, and band members are encouraged to help select the music. We have a percussionist, violin, keyboard, flute, and guitar, and sometimes a vocalist. Other instruments would be welcome.
