We are here for you


We may be working from outside the office and appear to be closed, but we remain very much open for business to help our community. Just ask our members about the wonderful Souper Bowl where three types of soup (all kosher) were delivered the members. It was warm, cozy and truly a blessing to have as the Chiefs got hammered by the Patriots. But we digress.

Also, please check our page above (The Rabbi’s Corner) for Rabbi Michael Arsers’ weekly drashas for the coming months as we are unable to meet. And we are attempting to reopen for Shabbat services as the vaccine rolls out more and more.

For more than 120 years, Congregation Agudas Achim has served the spiritual needs of Jewish life in Peoria and the surrounding area. With the only daily minyan and a kosher kitchen, Agudas Achim offers a unique blend of small town warmth and big city Jewish identity for its members and visitors. COVID NOTE: The daily minyan is on hold until the vaccine is more widely available. Once it is, we’ll restart that. However, we have met on occasion for people who are in need of a minyan. Call the office or email us to check for availability.

This congregation is the largest traditional congregation in the state of Illinois outside of the Chicago area. There is a Talmudic study group every Sunday morning and easy access for those who wish to delve further into Torah.

Agudas Achim is far more than that just services. Each year, we combine with Anshai Emeth for a community-wide Purim party, and the congregation participants are heavily involved with the Jewish Federation of Peoria. We are active sponsors of the Peoria Hebrew Day School whose children come to our services several times a year to lead and to enjoy the Shabbos morning. and ma’ariv services to follow.

We are located at 5614 N. University St., Peoria, Ill. 61614. For more information, either call at (309) 692-4848 or email at congaa@sbcglobal.net.
