Family Shabbat Service Celebrating Yom Haatzmaut

Friday, May 20th, 5:15 PM. In-person. Congregation Etz Hayim invites you to a family Shabbat service celebrating Yom Haatzmaut (Israel Independence Day) for families with young children (age 6 and younger). Don’t forget to RSVP. Masks are required for this event due to multiple recent COVID cases in the CEH Preschool. Sponsored by the David Schwartz Fund.

Tefillin Wrapping Workshop Recap

On April 24, Kitah Hey – Kitah Zayin students (5th – 7th Grades) learned about the mitzvah of tefillin. Rav Natan taught them about the values of coherency (alignment of actions, emotions and thoughts), tradition, and divine partnership. Morah CJ, Morah Amanda and Moreh Jacob led discussions and games to help the students learn and share their thoughts. Students also built jumbo tefillin and then learned to wrap their own. Yasher Koach to all!

Passover Scavenger Hunt

Have fun for Passover! We’ve created a fun community-wide interactive scavenger hunt! If you choose to accept this challenge, you will be given a list of missions (things you may find at home, in your neighborhood, in your community or online) to complete using the free online app called Goose Chase. Compete with local families while bonding over Passover with your family! Our Chase will run from April 10-24th. Sign up by April 7th to reserve your spot!

Member Walking Group

One way we are promoting the value of Shmirat HaGuf (“guarding/taking care of one’s body”) is by starting walking and biking groups for adults during Religious School hours. These groups will leave CEH after the Family Minyan (approximately 10:00 AM) and be led by congregants. These group outings will often head to a local coffee shop and will accommodate your pace (this is not the Tour de France)!
