Welcome to Temple Ahavat Achim

No front page content has been created yet.

  • Welcome

    We are Temple Ahavat Achim in Gloucester, MA. For more than 100 years we have been, quite simply, the center of Jewish Life on Cape Ann and surrounding North Shore towns.

  • Our teen programming is based on experiential learning and gimilut hasadim (acts of loving kindness). We learn to be Jewish is to do Jewish!

  • We are the only Jewish congregation on Cape Ann. We have been an integral part of the community for over a century. There is a real sense that each one of us is needed to nurture and sustain Jewish life here.

  • Our lively, creative synagogue school is for students K-8th grade, and we have Shabbat and Sunday morning programs for 0-preschool ages, too!

  • We invite you to join us!

Eric and Cynthia Kaplan

Cynthia and I came to TAA 12 years ago when we moved part-time to Gloucester.  TAA is a "Hamish" place and the Rabbi is a big part of why we enjoy it. 

I am a retired pediatrician having practiced for 40 years in Lowell and Westford. We lived in Chelmsford and raised our two daughters there.  My wife Cynthia loves plants and has worked at Cavicchio Greenhouses for many years.  One of our daughters is a lawyer in Massachusetts and the other owns a scene design shop for off Broadway shows in Brooklyn, NY. 

I enjoy the many opportunities to engage and help out at TAA.  I have joined the kitchen "crew", the Torah study class, and am a regular at Shabbat services and Sunday minyan. Having been a board member at my previous shuls for 25 years, I hope to have something to offer the TAA board of directors.
