History

Congregation Etz Chayim is an Orthodox synagogue in Toledo, Ohio. It is affiliated with the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. It was established through the merger of three older congregations. Prior to the current leadership of Rabbi Evan Rubin, our spiritual guides have included Rabbi Nechemia Katz ZT"L, and more recently Rabbis Edward Garsek and Jonathan Bienenfeld.

Congregation Etz Chayim is composed of Jews from diverse backgrounds, schooled in various expressions of Judaism. Some members have arrived in Toledo from other locales while many trace their Toledo ancestry back for more than a century. This combination enriches the fiber of our congregation.

At Etz Chayim, we come together to learn, pray and celebrate. During holidays, as well as life-cycle events, they feed their combined and individual spirits through prayer and programming focused to help explore life through Jewish eyes. Our focus is on the heritage we share, the joy of tradition and the fundamental importance of lifelong learning. We like to have a good time, as well.
