Congregation Etz Chaim
Help Etz Chaim Reach our Goal of Having a 100% Voter Turnout During the November General Election!
The general election is Tuesday, November 3.
“A ruler is not be appointed unless the community is first consulted.” - Rabbi Yitzchak Ben Yehuda ibn Gayyat. Judaism teaches us that voting is not just a civic duty. In fact, throughout Jewish history, many of our rabbis and sages have framed voting as a , a Jewish imperative.
Early voting has begun in DuPage County. Are you registered to vote? Be sure to check your voter registration status and register if you are eligable. The state of Illinois allows same-day, in-person registration on Election Day!
