WarmWelcomingIt just feels right

Welcome to Our Website!

Are you looking for a Conservative synagogue to call your home? Are you already a member of Temple Etz Chaim? Or are you just looking?

Whatever your reason for visiting our website, we’re glad you’re here.

Traditionally, a synagogue consists of a House of Worship (Beit Hat’fillah), a House of Education (Beit Hamidrash), and a House of Gathering (Beit Hak’nesset). What makes Temple Etz Chaim such a special place is that we combine these three “houses” into a single warm and welcoming home.

As you browse the various sections of our website, you will learn about the many services, programs, events, and activities that we offer in each of our “houses.” Perhaps more importantly, you will also get a sense of what it is like to be in our home!

In addition to introducing you to all that Temple Etz Chaim has to offer, our website has a current calendar of Temple events, a discussion of the weekly Parashah, a wealth of educational material including book reviews, articles on contemporary issues, and information on Jewish holidays and life cycle events, and more. We know that you will find the TEC website to be a valuable resource that you will want to visit regularly.

If you are interested in membership at Temple Etz Chaim, please contact Karen Levine, our Vice President of Membership, at [email protected].

Happy browsing!
