Etz Chaim Community

Congregants can “connect” in many ways here at Etz Chaim. From joining a committee to volunteering to help with a community project, our members find many opportunities “to belong” here.

There are many active committees and our religious school is fortunate to have interested adults and youths who volunteer their teaching talents.

Our Brotherhood and Sisterhood groups provide leadership, fellowship and social programming for their members and the congregation.

Volunteerism is a strong ethic and our members volunteer in various congregational and community projects.

She meets down-on-his-luck author, Bill Smith, and propses a marriage of convenience in order to remain in the country, but Bill has more ambitious ideas.

The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish

Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.
