Brotherhood blog

Wed, 12/11/2013 - 12:47pm -- Brotherhood

Brotherhood is Congregation Etz Chaim’s men’s club. We provide service to the congregation by ushering at High Holidays, constructing and deconstructing the sukkah, cooking for the end-of-school-year BBQ, and making financial donations to the congregation as needed. We sponsor annual events including Soup, Bread and Game night, Trivia Bowl, an art auction and a golf outing. We meet one Sunday a month at 9:30 AM, usually in the mutipurpose room at the synagogue, for a lox and bagel brunch, good conversation, and an interesting speaker.

Social Action Blog

Tue, 11/19/2013 - 1:06pm -- Social Action

The Social Action Committee works to achieve balanced support for a blend of social action causes and to include as many members of Etz Chaim in this work as possible. We encourage Tikkun Olam by giving congregants opportunities to roll up their sleeves and give to others through their own hard work on many programs and through donations to the Louis and Bettye Kaplan Social Action Fund and the lobby tzedakah box.

Good Changes are Coming Down the Pike

Mon, 06/10/2019 - 10:20am -- Rabbi Cosnowsky

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.
