Prayer at Etz Chaim
Congregation Etz Chaim offers a multitude of prayer services for one to enjoy and experience. Our strong lay leadership and the opportunities afforded to be a part of this leadership is just one powerful tool available to us as we explore out connection with God. For more information as to how YOU can be a part of our leadership team, please contact our office at 513-489-3399 or email us at .
We invite you to attend our egalitarian worship services:
Thursday Morning Minyan
A one hour minyan service is held every Thursday morning in our Chapel at 7:00 AM.
Yes it may be early, but it’s a great way to start your day. Followed by a sumptuous coffee,
bagel and lox breakfast – even includes liquor shots!
Friday Night Kabbalat Shabbat
Join us at 6:00pm for Kabbalat Shabbat to welcome in the Shabbat bride, followed by
Maariv. This hour-long service is filled with ruach and smiles.
Shabbat Morning services start at 9:30 AM and run until 12:00. These lay led services
can vary from the reflective to the lively and allow for some interpretation within the
conservative prayer structure due to our allowance of “davener’s choice.” Services are
followed by a delicious Kiddush luncheon.
We offer special services upon request, for any time of the week, so that our congregants,
with others’ help, can say kaddish and observe a Yahrzeit for a loved one.
These short (30-45 minute) services are just one more way that our congregants support
It is customary to recite a Misheberach, a prayer requesting blessing and healing, for
those who are sick. These prayers are recited on Monday and Thursday mornings and
on Shabbat. If you would like a Misheberach recited for a friend or loved one, please
call or e-mail the office.
We look forward to seeing you at Etz Chaim!!!
