About Us

Agudas Israel Congregation is affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Weekly Shabbat services are Saturdays at 9:30 AM. Our synagogue offers a social hall with kosher kitchen, chapel, library and Hebrew School.

Agudas Israel was established in 1893 and expanded to its current location at 77 North Pine Street in 1923 as Agudas Israel Congregation. For more on the history of our local community, check out the book: “Voices of Hazleton A Century of Jewish Life” written by Janette Miller in 1993. Contact the office to purchase or borrow a copy.
