Congregation Ahavas Sholom holds services every Saturday morning—starting at 9:30 a.m., in the summer as well. Attendance hovers around 25 to 30 people, with 60 or more attendees on special occasions. These special occasions are not infrequent, having included birthdays, aufrufs (before marriages), weddings, baby’s naming ceremonies, brit milahs, Sabbaths dedicated to organizations that have helped the Congregation, such as the Shomrim Society (Jewish law enforcement officers), Federation’s Young Leadership Division, or a havurah from Congregation Agudath Israel in Caldwell. They now include bnei mitzvah – 10 or more in the last years.
Every week the Congregation says Kiddush and eats lunch together in the social hall downstairs following services. In addition to weekly Shabbath Services, the synagogue holds periodic Friday evening services and dinners. Congregation Ahavas Shalom also holds services on the High holidays and on all major holidays throughout the year, and in recent years services are held on Tish’a B’Av and Simchat Torah.
Shabbat services start at 9:30 am.
