Congregation Etz Chaim
High Holidays 5781
We are thrilled to welcome The Fox Valley Jewish Neighbors and members of Congregation B’nai Abraham in Decatur, IL to join Congregation Etz Chaim in virtual worship this year.
We will be observing the High Holidays in a different manner. We will be holding both in-person activities and virtual services to enhance your worship experience. High Holiday Services are Free to all who want to attend. It is our hope that you can encounter the Days of Awe with new relevance and renewed understanding of the Jewish traditions.
Congregation Etz Chaim is to be that place of compassion, growth and welcome that spiritual seekers crave. We endeavor to support the passions of Jews and those who align themselves with the Jewish community and to nurture the well-being of all peoples.
