Congregation Etz Chaim

We are a unique congregation in South Florida committed to building a spiritual home for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Jewish community and our partners. At CEC you will find a love for the Jewish people, rituals and traditions we have come to know, a passion for Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam (charity and repairing the world), and a devotion to prayer and study.

We are a community and a place to celebrate life together, both the happy and challenging. From an Oneg honoring the at long last marriage of a long term gay couple, to saying Kaddish (the memorial prayer) for a beloved parent with your partner standing by your side, CEC is a place of comfort and freedom. You may even meet your Bashert over the lox platter. We invite you to become a member of our family. We welcome your enthusiasm and your commitment. Together we can create a true home for ‘Jews of the Rainbow’ in South Florida.
