- Etz Chaim is a vibrant congregation known for the passion and decorum of its prayer, the breadth and creativity of its programming, its devotion to Israel, and its warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Congregation Etz Chaim is, first and foremost, a makom tefillah, a shul where davening with fervor is complemented by an absolute insistence on proper decorum. Whatever the background, dress, or level of knowledge of worshippers, all feel welcome in a joint effort to create a heartfelt and harmonious tefillah. Yet we recognize that this attitude is a goal for which we must constantly strive, and whose achievements can never be taken for granted.
Parent-Child Learning takes place every Motzaei Shabbat during the winter about 1 hour after havdalah. Come and enjoy Torah, Pizza, and a cool raffle. Contact Rabbi Saul Erlbaum for more information or to sponsor an evening of learning.
Rabbi Moshe Rosenberg has been Rav of Etz Chaim for more than two decades, before which he served as Associate Rabbi of the Riverdale Jewish Center.
