Roots: Small Group Initiative

Have you heard about Etz Chaim's Roots Groups? These are interest-based small groups. Check out our active groups below and join in the fun! Do you have an idea, questions, or want to form a group? Let’s make it happen! Please contact Leah Green, our Director of Engagement.
Movie Group
The Etz Chaim Roots Movie Group is back! This group meets once a month on a Sunday afternoon at Merchants Walk to see a family-friendly movie (PG/PG-13). If you are interested in receiving communications regarding future movie outings, please click here to fill out the form or contact Tamar England.
Artists Collective
Are you an artist? We have an art roots group for all artists to meet, explore Jewish art connections, discuss art topics, support each other in projects, and contribute to our community. All mediums welcome. Whether it is a hobby or profession, please come to share your art interests and skills! Meetings are usually held once a month on Wednesday evenings at 8:00 p.m. via Zoom. For more information and to be part of this group, please contact Rob Foster.
Wednesday Golf Group
Do you have a flexible weekday work schedule? Retired? Looking for some camaraderie? Our golf group typically meets throughout the calendar year on Wednesdays between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. Our outings are at the Fox Creek Golf Course in Smyrna. To join our list, email Alan Silverman.    
Woodworkers of Etz Chaim
If you enjoy woodworking of all types and are interested in participating in this group, please contact Hank Needle or text him at 678-520-8635 to be added to the email list.
Schmooze on Zoom
Join us for an informal, weekly schmooze on Zoom on Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m. Our only request is to avoid the topic of politics. All are welcome. Facilitated by Esther Shultz. To be added to the email reminder list, please contact Esther. See you on Zoom. Meeting ID: 844 2620 2608
