Membership at Temple Etz Chaim

Within its walls, we celebrate life cycle events, learn of our rich history and heritage, and pass on our faith and traditions to our children, ensuring continuity from generation to generation. We worship together, celebrate together, learn together, and mourn together - as a congregation, as an extended family, as a spiritual community.

As you navigate through our site, you will discover the richness that Temple Etz Chaim offers its congregants through our:

  • Shabbat and Holiday Services
  • Early Childhood Education Center
  • Bureau of Jewish Education Accredited Religious School
  • United Synagogue Youth Program
  • Adult Education Classes
  • Family Education Programs
  • Auxiliary Organizations
  • Outreach to the Community
  • Havurot and Social Activities

Although associated with the Conservative movement, Temple Etz Chaim welcomes all who would like to worship, learn and celebrate with us. Etz Chaim, our Tree of Life, is alive - growing and flourishing. Rooted in the beauty and richness of our Jewish tradition, it strives toward a future of renewed commitment to our Jewish heritage. Please join us and experience the warmth and ruach (spirit) of our Temple family.

You can contact us with any questions by calling the Temple Office and leaving a message, by emailing us at [email protected], or by filling out a Membership Inquiry Form.

Shalom,

Temple Etz Chaim Membership
