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.
