Welcome to Etz Hayim

Congregation Etz Hayim is a wonderful, sacred community, a Kehilah Kedoshah.  We are a warm, inclusive Conservative congregation that reveres and embraces the rich heritage of our Jewish traditions and teachings. As a modern, egalitarian community living in America, we encourage diversity and freedom of expression, recognizing that each of us chooses our own path in Judaism.
