Happy Hanukkah!

Light the candles, spin the dreidels, and eat the latkes! It's time for Hanukkah!

Hanukkah begins on the evening of December 10 and goes through December 18. 

Remember that the candles are added to the menorah from right to left but are kindled from left to right.

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.
