We gather every Friday night at 8:00 p.m. to celebrate Shabbat and come together as a community. Our musical services encourage everyone to sing, and our monthly Torah Service inspires learning as we read the Torah and hear the words of our sacred text. Our siddur, Mishkah Tefilah incorporates Reform liturgy with accompanying Conservative choices. We sing traditional and contemporary melodies, and we open up the floor for discussion about the D'Var Torah during our "Drash Time".
Our Festive Oneg Shabbat often features Bagels and Lox, awesome cakes and homemade sweet. Click below to sponsor an Oneg in honor a milestone or in memory of a loved one. Click HERE for our contact page.
High Holy Days
Every year Congregation Etz Chaim celebrates the Jewish High Holy Days as an extended community, members and guests coming together in joy to celebrate our holiest days. Starting with S'lichot, we move into Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur. We change our Torah mantles to white, we read our sacred Torah, and we share the beginning of our new year together. The link below with take you to our High Holy Day page. Please consider joining us for these sacred days.
Whatever the holiday, Congregation Etz Chaim finds a way to make it Festive, Fun and FULL of life! Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Hanukkah, Tu b'Shevat, Purim and Pesach are all opportunities to gather as a community and celebrate together!
