Congregation Agudas Achim Endowment Fund
In an effort to establish a permanent legacy of support for our congregation, the board of directors has created the Congregation Agudas Achim Endowment Fund under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan County (CFOS). The goal of the board is to have a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding where the assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund may be paid out to support the congregation and any earnings in excess of this distribution will be used to build the fund’s market value. This will allow the fund to grow and support the congregation in perpetuity. The board of directors has set aside $5000 to CFOS to establish the fund with the commitment of raising $5000/year in donation with the goal of growing the fund to $25,000 within 5 years.
Contributions are encouraged and welcomed from not only congregants, but anyone who may want to make a donation to the congregation. All donations to the fund are tax deductible as it has been established as a 501.c.3 not for profit fund. We would like to encourage you to make a donation to the fund as you consider your end of the year donations or during the Annual Day of Giving in May. Contributing to the CFOS – Congregation Agudas Achim Endowment Fund is invaluable to the strength, quality and success of our temple today and insures our future.

ABOUT CONGREGATION AGUDAS ACHIM
Congregation Agudas Achim is a Reform congregation with a traditional soul located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York. Agudas Achim means “gathering of brothers and sisters”. It was named over 100 years ago and still applies.
Our members are diverse in their approaches to Judaism and geographic location
Our hope is to facilitate the spiritual and intellectual growth of our members. Rabbi Pomerantz challenges us by gaining new insights into ourselves and our faith. Our Cantorial team of Sherree Kane-Graber, Ira and Julia Levin inspire us with their amazing musical talents.
Agudas Achim provides all the essentials of a Jewish community. You will discover this by exploring the contents of our website. We are especially proud of the high quality learning experience we are able to provide our children because of our excellent and loving teachers. We conduct monthly Shabbat services on the first or second Friday. Special programming to enrich our community are conducted periodically.
