A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Temple Etz Chaim was founded in 1990 as a Reform Jewish Congregation. We encourage Jewish spiritual fulfillment, education of children and adults, and a growing sense of vital Jewish community. We are proud to be a full member of the Union for Reform Judaism and the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts. We are also a charter member of the Franklin Interfaith Council.
We are proud to be a four-generation Temple. As a Temple family, we celebrate all the holidays and festivals together. Our greatest celebrations are Shabbat. We always welcome new and existing members to join with us in prayer, to revitalize from the busy work week, and to participate in the oneg. Our services are warm and friendly and our congregation enjoys the benefit of sharing life's joys and sorrows. 50% of our current membership are interfaith families.
Temple Etz Chaim is a Reform Jewish community, which encourages a journey towards spiritual fulfillment through Jewish education of both adults and children, communal worship and social activities. We are committed to guaranteeing equal rights in all matters and to Tikkun Olam "the healing of the world"; beginning at our home and reaching beyond to the global community.
