Learning at Etz Chaim
Jewish education is the shared responsibility of the family, the school and our congregation. Congregation Etz Chaim offers many ongoing and special programs to help our congregants be knowledgeable, active and competent members of the Jewish community.
During the school year, Sunday mornings at Etz Chaim are a beehive of activity when the Religious School, serving students in preschool through 10th grade, is in session. Children in grades 3-7 also attend midweek Hebrew classes on Wednesdays.
Adult education programs are offered for members who wish to expand their knowledge of Hebrew, Judaism, current events, and Torah. Programs may be led by the congregation’s rabbis or members, or by visiting rabbis or other outside experts.
JUF Brunch with Guest Speaker Patricia Bernstein
Patricia Bernstein is the author of Ten Dollars to Hate: The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan. Ten Dollars to Hate tells the story of the massive Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s--by far the most "successful" incarnation since its inception in the ashes of the Civil War--and the first prosecutor in the nation to successfully convict and jail Klan members.

Our Torah Study group meets in the synagogue's library on Saturday mornings from 9:00 to 10:15. We are working our way through the Book of Esther. Each week we read and discuss. This is a wonderful group and we have a great time.
