“War what is it good for? Absolutely nothing…” sang Edwin Starr way back in 1970. And in 2016, a version of this anti-war classic found its way into an album entitled "Kentucky."
This Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11. A scorching event that remains a simmering throb within. A mutation of history. Civilization altered. The spectacular emergence of ultimate evil. The carnage brought us together as a nation as we mourned the pure souls and splintered white picket fences that were America.
Etz Chaim is...
Congregation Etz Chaim is a progressive, egalitarian Conservative synagogue that provides meaningful Jewish experiences in a welcoming, engaging environment. We offer:
Inspiring religious services
Educational, social, and cultural activities, serving multi-generational needs
A caring community that supports each other through both joyful and challenging life cycle events
Connections with the broader community and opportunities for Tikkun Olam...
Our intention, in all activities, is to provide an environment of warmth and an opportunity for personal growth. We celebrate together, we pray together, and we learn together, making Etz Chaim truly a home away from home.
