Getting Involved

Starting Thursday, July 2 2020, we will be having lay-led services, and we need you to participate!

Friday Night & Saturday Morning Services

Sign up here to lead a portion of the service, a prayer or two, and/or read Torah or Haftarah.

  • Friday night and Saturday morning Shabbat services will now be held exclusively via Zoom (no more Facebook live).
  • Torah will be chanted from books (you can use trope and vowels!), not an actual scroll.
  • We won’t do Torah blessings but will pause between aliyot to announce verses.
  • Non-members of Etz Hayim are welcome to participate, read, and lead.
  • All ages, including pre-B’nai Mitzvah are welcome to sign up for anything. We’d love post-B’nai mitzvah to lead the Kaddishes and Barechu.
  • We are still figuring out whether we can do any of the Torah Service that surrounds the reading of the Torah/Haftarah. Stay tuned for updates.
  • If you want to participate but need more practice, help or coaching, contact Chief.Gabbai@etzhayim.net.

Thursday Morning Minyan

Have a yahrzeit or another occasion where you need a minyan? Add your initials here to request a Thursday morning minyan. When you make this request, a call is sent out to Minyan Makers to help to ensure a minyan.

If you would like to help lead or chant Torah on Thursday morning, or if you would like to be added to the list of Minyan Makers, please contact Chief.Gabbai@etzhayim.net.
