About Beit Aharon

Beit Aharon has been bringing together and serving the Jews of Ridgewood and Bushwick, as well as Glendale, for most of the past decade.  It evolved from a regular minyan of the remaining congregants of the old Agudas Israel of Ridgewood synagogue.  For a while, we were holding services in a member's home. With the cooperation of these congregants and the organizing efforts of our rabbi as well as support from some local businesspeople, we were able to get an independent place to hold services and two wonderful Sifrei Torah.  Beit Aharon now serves both the residents of the area as well as Jewish business people and employees who work nearby.  Our biggest challenge is to let the many new Jewish residents in the neighborhood know that there is an active Jewish community in Ridgewood and we have a place to gather and to pray and to learn and to observe Shabbat, holidays, and other mitzvot.
