Welcome to Congregation Ahavath Achim

Shalom, and welcome to the home page of Congregation Ahavath Achim. We are a Conservative Congregation located in Tyler, in the heart of East Texas. This website was created to provide information to the members on upcoming events and tell potential newcomers about Conservative Jewish life in our region.

About Us

In 1898, a few Jewish families decided to form a congregation, and they named it Ahavath Achim. Ahavath Achim means brotherly love. The two elements of Brotherhood and Love are integral parts of Tyler’s Jewish history. This spirit of gracious hospitality is extended to every newcomer.

We are an egalitarian congregation dedicated to providing a home for traditional observance, study and gathering for the East Texas Jewish community. Through our many activities we strive to serve Judaism and our members. We offer regular Shabbat and holiday services. Men, women, and children take an active role in services.

Jewish education of young and old is vital for our future. We offer many educational programs including Hebrew School (grades 2 through B’nei Mitzvah), Sunday School (pre-K through 6th grade), and Adult Education classes. We strive to enrich Jewish life in East Texas.

We are proud of our rich history, and we are dedicated to maintaining a bright future for our children.

Our Synagogue is open for Saturday services. All Jews and invited guests are welcome. If you would like to attend, please first contact the Synagogue or the Rabbi.
