Electrical Art

shul painted on electrical boxWhat do you think of the newly painted electrical boxes?  They're all over the neighborhood and some are gorgeous.  

shul-elec-box 01 reducedThe one on Washington Street, in front of Our Lady's, features three views of The Adams Street Synagogue (as well as views of the church and of The Jackson Homestead)

It was painted by Paul Lambert.  Check it out.

We are an independent, historic Orthodox shul that serves a diverse congregation and the broader community. We provide a place for davening (prayer), learning, and spiritual growth; and a social environment where we celebrate holidays and life-cycle events together.

We are haimish — a warm, caring, welcoming community where everyone can contribute and be active in the life of the congregation, build on the traditions of our founders, and link the Jewish past to the future.

A Modern Community

We hope you will visit us when you visit Boston. If you live here, we hope you will participate in our educational classes, religious services, and holiday celebrations.

For a quick overview of what's going on, visit our What's New page and our Calendar.

A Historic Shul

The Adams Street Shul is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We are now in our second century of service to the Jewish community.

Part of our mission is to preserve and maintain this historic building, with the help of many supportive friends.
