Tradition and Caring

These words describe Congregation Agudat Achim and its members. 

Committed to a traditional pattern of Jewish worship,

while sensitive to the spiritual needs of its congregants,

our congregation provides opportunities for

worship and study to members of all ages. 

We are a warm, welcoming Conservative egalitarian synagogue located in the Capital District of upstate New York.

At Agudat Achim, we have members

of all ages and levels of observance.

Interfaith families and Jews-by-choice are

an integral part of our congregational family.

If you are looking for a congregation in which to grow spiritually, academically, and morally, read about us through this website and then plan a visit so that we can welcome you to our family, and we can become part of yours.

All are welcome here!
