Congregation Etz Chaim is a small, Orthodox shul with a big heart and a desire to grow!
Our essence can best be described as
"Community and Torah".
People in our shul come from diverse backgrounds.
We represent a wide range of professionals who work in the secular world and come together to create a vibrant and lively shul
where each one of us adds our special and unique contributions to the whole.
As of May 6, the Board of Health has said that the Norfolk County COVID-19 Community level is HIGH. They strongly recommend that everyone two years of age and older wear a well-fitting, high-quality mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status.
If you have borrowed any books from the Etz Chaim library which you are no longer using, kindly return them to the shul’s bookshelf. We are reorganizing the library.
Come Join Us!
We hope and pray for a refuah shleimah for everyone who needs one. In particular our prayers are directed to our dear community members Tzila Pass (Tzila Chava bat Rachel), Alan Pass (Asher Anshel ben Miriam), Heidi Goldblatt (Rachel Chana bas Menucha), Merilee Maeir (Malkah Menucha bas Hinda), Rabbi Barry Hartman (Berel Dovid ben Sarah, Susan Cable (Shulamit bat Braina Bashi), Esther Dell and Chana Rivka Dana (Chana Rivka bas Nesha). May they each have a complete and speedy recovery.
