Join the Brotherhood and experience the fraternity of Congregation Etz Chaim men. The group serves many social, philanthropic, religious, and community needs. Enjoy fun, Judaic, and community-based activities. You’ll experience friendship, camaraderie, fellowship, and support. At its core, the Brotherhood enhances the lives of self-identified men at Congregation Etz Chaim. Join us!  


The Etz Chaim Sisterhood provides a place for self-identified women of all ages and stages to enrich their lives through programs that encourage the pursuit of Jewish values and communal learning. Members are able to share meaningful moments, ideas, and experiences. Fundamentally, the Sisterhood is about nurturing strong relationships with other self-identified women. That’s done through various events throughout the year.

Aimed at congregants in their 20s to 40s, the Young Professionals Group offers a chance to socialize with Jewish peers. The group strengthens the bonds between young professionals by engaging in fun activities once a month such as karaoke, WhirlyBall, hiking, and more!








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.





It’s well-established that seniors tend to feel lonely, but that’s not the case for Etz Chaim congregants! The Seniors Group gives participants the opportunity to learn, connect, and socialize with people in their age group (older than 50). 

We have a “Lunch ‘n Learn” on the third Wednesday of the month where optional bagels and lox are served followed by a presentation, documentary, movie, or discussion.
