About Kehillat Etz Chayim 


     Etz Chayim was formed in 2018 as a Modern Orthodox congregation in Huntington Woods, Michigan that is guided by the rabbinic leadership of Rabbi Asher Lopatin.  We look for opportunities for all congregants- men, women and children- to engage meaningfully in the shul services and with their Judaism.  

     We meet for Shabbat services from Mincha on Friday night through Maariv on Saturday, as well as on all holidays. Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat Mincha/Maariv services are held on Friday and Saturday evenings at a private residence in Huntington Woods (please contact us for the address). Shabbat morning services (beginning at 9:30 a.m.)  are held in the small chapel at Congregation Beth Shalom located at 14601 Lincoln in Oak Park.  A kiddush follows services.

     Membership is not required to attend Shabbat davening. For the High Holidays in 2019, neither membership nor a ticket is required. Those who wish to support Etz Chayim may do so by becoming a member, sponsoring a Kiddush or making a contribution. please see "Support" for more information.
