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!

Movie Group

The Etz Chaim Roots Movie Group is looking for a new "leader"! This group meets once a month on a Sunday afternoon at Merchants Walk to see a family-friendly movie (PG/PG-13). 

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 are 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.

Art for a Mitzvah

Do you have a creative side? Art for a Mitzvah is a group that comes together quarterly to make a different unique craft for yourself or purchased by a congregant. The proceeds from the sale of these handcrafted items are divided between a worthy non-profit organization and the other half is used to purchase supplies for the next project. For more information and to hear about upcoming programs contact Lynne Johannesen.

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.    

Wood Workers 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.

Birthday Club

Each month, members of the Etz Chaim community come together for lunch and a birthday celebration. For more information and to get on the email list, contact Laurie Lavinsky or Malka Riesenberg.

Walking/Running Group

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: 815 1837 7077
