Congregation Agudas Achim (CAA) has acquired nine sifrei Torah in its more than 100-year history. Seven are installed in the Aron haKodesh of the main sanctuary. Two scrolls are kept in the chapel, where they are read at the morning minyan on Mondays, Thursdays, Rosh Chodesh, and special occasions.
Much of the following information about our Torah scrolls was provided by former CAA member and teacher Roberta Long (a”h) who traced the history of our scrolls with the assistance of scribe and teacher Dr. Eric Ray (z”l). Torah scroll nicknames were created by congregant Lucien Zahendra, one of our longest-serving Torah readers.
