Yelp!

Here's an easy and cost-free way you can help our community grow! Many people are searching for a shul near Boston on the Internet. Often, Yelp's page about our shul comes up along with our website. These search results mean that many people's first impression of our shul comes from Yelp's listing.

Yelp is a directory of businesses and institutions. Anyone can post reviews there. You can help us attract more visitors and prospective members by visiting The Adams Street Shul's listing at Yelp, and rating us or reviewing us there. It takes just a couple of minutes and is free.

The more positive reviews, written by diverse people sharing their perspectives, the more our listing in the Yelp directory is a valuable aid to our long term growth.  

Hey, People of the Book!

Many of us buy stuff over the Internet; everything from books and DVDs to pet food and tomato sauce. And many of us use Amazon.com, the world's largest store. Instead of going to Amazon.com by typing that into your computer, please go there by using one the links below, and Amazon will donate about 6% of your purchase to the shul.  Since they usually have the best prices, you save too!

For example: Here's a link to buy the Artscroll Siddur: Nusach Sefard (the same Siddur we use in the Shul).  And here's the The Chumash: The Stone Edition (the same one we use in the Shul). Or any Books at all!

In fact, Amazon donates to the Shul when you buy anything (if you go to Amazon via our links), including: 

So please use these links to help the Shul whenever you shop. Thanks!

If You Feed Them, They Will Come

Bert Grand at the Shul Centennial Red Sox OutingWe hope you have enjoyed the pleasant socializing each week after Shabbat morning services. Have you ever wondered how the shul manages to provide the kiddush even on weeks when it has not been sponsored? 

The Grand Family Kiddush Fund sponsors the kiddush whenever no one else has.  Even if you cannot sponsor a kiddush on your own, small donations in any amount are always welcome.  Simply designate that your donation is for The Grand Family Kiddush Fund. 

It's a nice way to honor someone, celebrate a simcha, or memorialize a loved one.  You can donate online now.
