In Victory, Remember Humility - July 2, 2015

Thu, 07/02/2015 - 12:00am -- Rabbi Shalom Lewis

Rabbi Shalom Lewis

We often hear the phrase ‘sore loser,’ referring to one who did not get their way and is incapable of accepting legitimate defeat. We are critical of such folks, and rightfully condemn their narcissism as infantile and as undignified.  In life, there are winners and there are losers. Sometimes we carry home the gold, and sometimes we shuffle off, downcast, to the locker room.

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.
