MRJ Achim 2 Col
Achim on the Web
From 1926 (three years after its founding) until 2010, MRJ (formerly the North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods) printed and distributed the premier Jewish men’s magazine in North America. For over four decades the magazine was called The Jewish Layman, then the magazine’s title was changed to Brotherhood in the 1950’s, and then again in the late 1990’s to Achim (Hebrew for Brothers). Throughout its nearly 85 years of publication, the magazine sought to provide brotherhood members with outstanding articles on numerous topics of interest to adult Jewish men, from men’s health, Israel, contemporary gender issues, to updates on the national organization’s programs (e.g., the Jewish Chautauqua Society and Reform on Campus). Achim-on-the-Web has been designed to use ‘new’ technology, but seeks to continue that proud 85 year tradition of excellence!
