Etz Chaim is a modern, egalitarian, conservative synagogue that provides meaningful and inspiring religious services in a welcoming, engaging and uplifting environment. We are a tight knit community that supports each other through joyful and challenging life cycle events. We foster an environment that promotes personal connection and trust among our congregants and with our rabbinical and administrative staff. Everyone is encouraged to participate in our educational, social, and cultural activities regardless of their level of observance. We serve multi-generational needs including those of young children and families, adolescents, young adults, empty-nesters, and seniors with the same high level of dedication and enthusiasm. We strive to create links with the broader community and provide opportunities for Tikun Olam.

As you explore our website, you will find that we offer a wide variety of programs to meet the needs of all of our congregants - from singles to young families, from our youth to our “prime timers”. Below is a sampling of our many programs:
