Congregation Etz Chaim of DuPage County, a Reform synagogue in Lombard, serving more than 500 families in the western suburbs of Chicago. We have a tradition of having an "open door" which welcomes everyone- Jews by birth, Jews by choice, non-Jewish family members, singles, LGBT and people of all ages. We are a caring community that draws strength on our commitment to honor and respect the diversity of our membership.

The congregation was founded in 1960 as Tree Towns Congregation in Elmhurst by eight local families. Learn More...
