If you’re thinking of joining Congregation Etz Chaim, please visit us, tour the synagogue, meet our rabbis, speak with our Director of Lifelong Learning, and participate in our services. Give us a call at (630) 627-3912 to arrange a visit.

We are each part of a larger community as we encounter the highs and lows or our individual and family lives. The values and mission of our organization help touch the lives of our members in meaningful ways. We gain support, community, and inspiration in an organization that supports Judaism Your Way.

Membership in Congregation Etz Chaim is not be like belonging to any other organization. Our synagogue family embraces all who join with us, sharing our backgrounds, experiences, and stories as we seek personal and collective meaning. Belonging to Congregation Etz Chaim reminds us that by giving something of ourselves to others we discover how much more purpose and perspective we receive in return.

Our membership dues are based on a fair share of income. In order to sustain our vibrant community, we rely on the generosity of our members. However, no one is turned away because of financial circumstances and request a personally significant contribution when possible. Our Executive Director and Financial Secretary will work with each family privately and thoughtfully through this process to help you find a way to contribute in a meaningfully significant way. We welcome anyone who supports our mission and aligns with our values, regardless of age, race, marital status, sexual orientation, physical ability, sensory sensitivity, or financial means. We look forward to welcoming you! Explore more about Congregation Etz Chaim (CEC).
