Historic Jewish Atlanta Tour: Congregation Ahavath Achim

Experience History at its Source!

Join us for our next Historic Jewish Atlanta Tours at Congregation Ahavath Achim! Founded in 1887, Congregation Ahavath Achim (Congregation of Brotherly Love) brought together recent Eastern European Jewish immigrants who wanted to practice Orthodox Judaism in Atlanta. Explore the 130 year history behind the Congregation while touring the inside of the present-day Synagogue, with its beautiful Ark and stained glass windows, designed by Israeli artist Perle Pelzig. Discover how a handful of congregants grew and the Congregation of Brotherly Love became one of the most important orthodox houses of worship in the South.
