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).  Prior to the pandemic, Shabbat morning services were held at 9:30 a.m. in the small chapel at Congregation Beth Shalom located at 14601 Lincoln in Oak Park, with a kiddush following services. 


     During the pandemic, weather permitting, services are held on Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday afternoons outdoors at a private Huntington Woods residence.  Please contact the shul for details.
