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.

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.
