About Us

Congregation Etz Chayim

is a vibrant Jewish community

guided by a vision for our synagogue:

participatory and egalitarian,

independent and inclusive,

feels like home.

 

We’re growing a Jewish community

composed of people with diverse beliefs and backgrounds.

We recognize Judaism as an evolving religion

deeply rooted in tradition.

We embrace both spiritual and intellectual inquiry,

draw selectively from Judaism's different branches,

create our own practices.

 

And we love to sing.

 

Like an extended family,

our members actively care for and support each other

through life cycles, annual cycles, and life's ups and downs.

 

Together, we engage in lifelong learning

individually and communally,

as adults, families, and youth,

through reflection and questioning,

singing and music,

study and prayer.

 

Our members drive congregational life

supported and inspired by our rabbi and staff,

creating an engaging, joyful, and meaningful

Jewish environment open to everyone.
