History Biographical
Agudath Achim Congregation was created December 16, 1946 and in 1947 obtained the building at 15 - 17 Harvey Street in the Town of Perth, Ontario. The first directors were Louis Karakowsky (also Karakofsky), Abraham Cohen, David Hoffman, Joseph Hoffman, Boris Haber, Isadore Levine and Harry Handler. The Jewish Community used one half of the building as its synagogue and rented out the other half as a residence. In 1980, due to insufficient numbers, the synagogue closed and the building was sold to Paul Byington, a local antiques dealer, who converted the property to residential use. Byington restored a number of the building's heritage features and was instrumental in obtaining heritage designation for the property on January 30, 1984. The building was built in 1830 as the private residence of John Doran (merchant and developer), an early settler of Perth originally from Wexford, Ireland. In 1834, the Bathhurst Courier Newspaper announced the opening of St. George's Hotel under the management of William Cross. By 1851 the business had been taken over and renamed Patterson's Hotel by James Patterson. Changing ownership again in 1874, it once again became a private residence and remained so with various owners until the mid-1900's. In 1980, after the synagogue's closing, Bob Smolkin, a native of Perth, presented the Torah from Agudath Achim synagogue to Beit Rayim Synagogue in Richmond Hill, Ontario outside Toronto.

History Biographical
Congregation Agudath Achim was founded in 1917. Its members, the Jewish community of Sherbrooke, Quebec, had emigrated there around the First World War, mainly from Estropol, Russia. The congregation prayed in a loft until the building was completed in the 1920s. It was further expanded in the 1950s. With the Jewish population dwindling, the community tried to sell the building and continue their activities in a smaller hall; their services were attended by Jews of the surrounding areas as well. The synagogue also maintained a cemetery. The Congregation ceased functioning in 1983.
