No one is more welcome at Congregation Achduth Vesholom than you!
As Indiana’s oldest Jewish congregation, we’ve been building Jewish community since 1848. We have a long tradition of bringing together those who want to share the joy of Judaism in Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana.
Our name means “unity and peace.” We are truly a family at the Temple. We support one another in times of difficulty, share life’s blessings at times of happiness, and work together to bring about tikkun olam, the betterment of the world around us.
A charter member of the Union for Reform Judaism, our warm and innovative congregation is open to the traditional riches of the Jewish past, while continuously looking for ways to build a creative and meaningful future.
We strive to be a welcoming place for people with diverse religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, gender identities, and abilities. We actively welcome interfaith families into our community and encourage their participation in Temple life.
Picture yourself as part of our Temple family – we can’t wait to meet you! Please reach out to us at (260) 744-4245 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
