About Us


Adas Kodesch Shel Emeth has been serving the needs of Delaware’s Jewish community since 1885.  AKSE is an inclusive traditional congregation currently operating just within Wilmington city limits.  If you wish to be part of a warm and caring congregational family, to grow Jewishly at your own level of comfort, or to participate in religious, educational, cultural, community service or social activities, AKSE is where you belong.

We invite you to stop by and see for yourself.  Our services and most of our activities are open to the community.

As of March 2022, we are conducting services and activities at our home at
2412 Pennsylvania Ave., Wilmington, DE 19806.


We look forward to meeting you personally.  Contact us by calling the office at 302-762-2705 or e-mailing us at prez@AKSE.org.
