About the Agudah

The Agudat HaKehilot Ahavat Shalom was formed on Rosh Chodesh Tamuz, 5774 as an effort to bind together the combined resources and services of Broward County's Sefardic congregations in to a dynamic working community. The overwhelming majority of orthodox Jews in Broward County and South Florida as a whole are Sefardic and while the infrastructure in South Florida for observant Jews in South Florida is well established it can not always meet the specific needs of our Sefardic communities. The Agudah was established not to take the place of the current organizations, but rather to supplement them and to give guidance to our communities according to the halachot of the Maran Yosef Karo and the important practical differences that result in all areas of Jewish Sefardic life.
