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.
