Other Ways to Be Involved


We strongly believe that children have to enjoy coming to the synagogue or they simply won’t come. We’ve planned our activities accordingly and as a result, our young people continue their involvement with Etz Chaim well past their bar/bat mitzvah, through confirmation, and beyond. We have Junior and Senior Youth Groups, Kadimah, B'yachad, Junior Choir, summer day camps for young children, Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI) summer camp in Wisconsin for older children, Israel trips supported by the Send-a-Kid-to-Israel Partnership (SKIP) program, and outreach to our students away at college.  The youth groups also take part in congregational family programs, mitzvah projects, and social action programs.


Do you love to read? You’re in luck – the Etz Chaim Jeremy Bruder Memorial Library is open and available for your use. You can borrow items from our extensive collection of fiction and nonfiction books for all ages. Plus, we have media, games, and other items available to borrow.

All materials are purchased through donations to the Robert N. Glass Memorial Library Fund. We are not accepting physical donations at this time.

The library is named after Jeremy Bruder, who was tragically killed in June 1996 by a classmate. You’ll see pictures of Jeremy lining the walls of the library with his beaming smile and expressive eyes. In keeping with Jeremy’s zest for life, and his quest for knowledge, it is only fitting and proper that the library is memorialized in his name. Come visit!
