The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Rabbi Weinberg and Bert Grand with Torah ScrollsOn Saturday night, December 15, 2012, we celebrated our Centennial.  For those who couldn't be there, we are happy to provide the video below.

The video includes excerpts of all facets of the event.  It begins upstairs in the sanctuary, with two-minutes of the pre-event congregational socializing;  then two minutes of the live music by the Nagila Ensemble, followed by a series of stimulating presentions by President Benyomin Fleischmann, Steven Cantor, Beryl Gilfix, Rabbi Norbert Weinberg, Nechama Cheses, and Barry Shrage.  Then the video continues downstairs in the Elmer Lippin Social Hall, with more live music, schmoozing, and speechifying.
And now here's the video: 

We hope you enjoy the video.  Donations to support our educational programs and their availability on the Internet are always welcome.

This event was produced by our Centennial Programs Committee, comprised of Steven Cantor (Chair), Zhanna Cantor, Shelley Greene, David Jacobson, Steven Jaffe, Jane Rosen, Philip Rosen, and Chaya Esther Vaks.
