High Holidays 5782

This year, 5782 will be a first for Congregation Etz Chaim

as we will be offering a Chai-brid (Hybrid)

High Holiday Service Experience

Comprised of Virtual and Outdoor-In-Person Offerings.

While other Synagogues may choose to open up their sanctuaries, we are simply

unwilling to gamble with the safety and well-being of our congregants.

Each member is our family member - we will not risk the safety of our family.

While this decision was painful to make we are willing to sacrifice one

High Holiday season so that we can be together and celebrate 100 more simchot.

Below you'll find the full letter from our

President, Dr. Howard Saal, explaining this decision.


As we move from grief for what might have been,

we set our eyes on the horizon and dream about what can be.

5782 will no doubt look different, but we are exhilarated and will work tirelessly

to ensure that every congregant has a meaningful, spiritual, and love-filled High Holidays.

Scroll down to see all our exciting plans!
