Shared Memories of Avas Achim
I love your site – thank you!
Just a note that “Avas Achim” is actually “Ahavas Achim” – love of brothers. People tended to slur it so it sounded a lot like “avas achim.” It merged with Beth Aaron around 1968 to form Beth Achim in Southfield, which then was assimilated into Adat Shalom in Farmington Hills around 1998.
Editor Note: Thank you for the correction. This will be corrected in an upcoming udpate.
I didn't see the Delmar Shul (Delmar near Westminister) in your database.
Did I miss it (or did you?)? The United Hebrew school building was across
the street. I have many memories of both.
