Minyan Services

Ahavath Achim is one of a few Atlanta synagogues that offers a minyan every day of the week, two times a day. Both congregants and community members are invited to join the services for prayer, fellowship, and moments of memory for loved ones. You may participate daily virtually (via Zoom), or you can join us in person in Ellman Chapel on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday mornings, as well as Thursday evenings (for Shabbat services, see below).

Our minyan goes back more than 100 years and helps Jews across Atlanta and the country open their hearts in connection each day. Every Tuesday morning and on the first Thursday morning of each month, a dedicated group of women help "make the minyan."

You will be welcomed both morning and evening to enrich your day with prayer and camaraderie. If you are in mourning or saying Kaddish for a Yahrzeit, you will be embraced by our community for those holy moments.

One does not need to be a member of our congregation to attend our services, classes, or programs. We only ask that one has an open heart and a giving spirit. All souls are welcome to find joy, strength, hope, and peace within our community.

Morning Minyan runs approximately 45–60 minutes, and Evening Minyan runs approximately 30 minutes. Please contact the office or the rabbis with any questions.

Shabbat Services

Shabbat is a time for spiritual reflection, quality time with the family, and a break from routine. We disconnect from our daily world and create an oasis in time and space for restoring our bodies and souls. We welcome you to spend Shabbat with our congregational family, taking time to disconnect from the world of doing and enter into the world of connecting. All three services on Shabbat are available to join in person or virtually (via Zoom). Friday night and Saturday morning services are also live streamed to YouTube.

  • Friday Evening Shabbat Service: 6–7:15 p.m.; In-Person, Zoom, and YouTube
  • Saturday Morning Shabbat Service: 9:30 a.m.–12:15 p.m.; In-Person, Zoom, and YouTube
  • Saturday Afternoon Mincha, Ma'ariv, and Havdallah Service: 1.5 hours before sunset (see calendar)
    • Includes Seudah Shelishit (third meal) and learning between services—In-Person and Zoom

All of our services are accessible virtually (via Zoom). Services on Friday night and Saturday morning are also live streamed to YouTube. All Zoom links are hyperlinked above. If you have technical difficulties, please refer to the online Zoom tutorials here.
