The Brotherhood of Etz Chaim services the congregation through activities such as ushering at High Holiday services, putting up and taking down the Sukkah, putting on two BBQs (one at the beginning and one at the end-of-school-year), organizing fundraisers, and making financial donations to the congregation as needed.

Another part of Brotherhood is sponsoring many events, such as Trivia Night, Whirly Ball, Family Fishing Day, "Ask the Rabbi", Bears/Cubs/Blackhawks watch parties, and informative presentations from our members.

Brotherhood meets once a month, usually on Sunday mornings at 9:30am, though some events/activities are held offsite at various days/times. Our Sunday morning activities always start with lox, bagels, coffee and time for "schmoozing" with fellow members.

Brotherhood is a great way for new and current members to connect, get to know each other, and get involved in Etz Chaim. Please come and join us and see what we are all about.
