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.

To ensure community health, Congregation Etz Hayim’s building is currently closed. However, our office staff is working remotely, we are holding virtual religious services and programs. For a complete overview of our remote programming, click here. We will get through this b’yachad (together).
