Social Action

At Etz Chaim, we care about the world around us. Through a variety of opportunities within Etz Chaim and the greater Atlanta community, Tikkun Olam is one of the cornerstones of Jewish tradition.

We continue to participate in the following annual events: the Hunger Walk benefiting the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Kosher Pantry, knitting scarfs with our Sisterhood to provide warmth to our friends at MUST Ministries, and cook meals for the residents at Rebecca's Tent, a women's shelter, during the month of February,  the Men's Club annual blood drive with Life South, providing gift cards for Chanukah with our partners at Jewish Family and Career Services (JF&CS), as well as our monthly food drive for the Kosher Food Pantry at JF&CS and educational programs on anti-sex trafficking and protecting your child from predators.

Our Special Relationship in Uganda with Namanyonyi Synagogue 

Congregation Etz Chaim has built a relationship with Moshe Sebagabo of the Namanyonyi Synagogue in Uganda.  We continue to send supplies for the chagim and recently, have provided the emergency funds for them to purchase soap to distribute to people in their village during the Covid-19 pandemic. Moshe sends his thanks along with these photos:
