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 inclusive community which welcomes everyone- Jews by birth, Jews by choice, non-Jewish family members, singles, LGBTQA+ and people of all ages and abilities. 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...

"Everything You Always Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask About Orthodox Judaism*"

Join distinguished Orthodox Rabbi Yehiel Poupko, Rabbinic Scholar at the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, as he leads a question and answer session about Orthodox Judaism. As Reform Jews, we may often feel so different from our Orthodox siblings, and we may not understand or relate to many of their customs or beliefs. But our common bonds make us inseparable.

Come with your questions on Sunday, May 19 at 9:45 AM.
