The Community of Agudas Israel

A message from our president, Dr. Linda PerkelDr. Linda Perkel

Agudas Israel Congregation is a vibrant community, small, but infused with committed and energized members. We are able to accomplish amazing things, supporting the greater community while learning, socializing and praying together. The temple has been in existence for 92 years. Its mission to serve as a place of holiness and sanctuary for the Jewish residents of Hendersonville has remained true.

If you choose to join us you will experience the warmth and friendliness of those who welcome you. This is a community that seeks to celebrate with you during the good times and support you during those that are not so good. 

We are proud of our Temple . We are proud of our community. We would love to welcome you.
