Congregation Etz Chaim of DuPage County


Religious services at Etz Chaim are exceptionally warm and welcoming. They reflect and deepen our sense of community. In our sanctuary, the seats are arranged so we can see the front of the sanctuary as well as each other. Ascending to the bimah requires only one step. As we begin the Torah service, we take the Torah from the ark and carry it through the sanctuary. Our choir sits close to the congregation. The melodies they sing invite participation by the entire congregation. We experience our worship services as part of a community.

The Ritual and Religious Committee has approved a plan to stream every Friday night Shabbat service and all holiday services. Click here to stream live.

Worship Spotlight

"For many years, congregants have asked that we change our traditional 8:15 PM service time to an earlier time for them to be able to pray and then go home to eat dinner. Others have expressed their desire for the service time to stay at 8:15 PM so they may have time to get home from work, enjoy dinner and then attend services. In order to make it possible for more congregants and guests to enjoy
services, starting in August, we will offer two service times twice a month in order to better accommodate more congregants in their desire for services."
