Inclusivity

Congregation Etz Hayim is a warm, inclusive, liturgically conservative congregation that reveres and embraces the rich heritage of our Jewish traditions and teachings. As a modern, egalitarian community, we encourage diversity and freedom of expression, recognizing that each of us chooses our own path in Judaism.

Combining study and action, we tailor our efforts to engage people and families of all backgrounds, races, ages, faith histories, sexual orientations, gender identities, physical or mental abilities or health, socioeconomic statuses, and relationship statuses. By drawing on the vast and varied experiences of our members, we seek to learn from one another, maintain the continuity of our honored customs, and cultivate a new generation of leaders to sustain our future.
