Etz Hayyim Synagogue is an active synagogue with Kabbalat Shabbat prayers taking place every Friday, as well as services on other holidays.

Over the week, Etz Hayyim welcomes visitors during its opening hours. For further information on times and dates for Kabbalat Shabbat and other holidays, please see our website (see calendar under “News and Events”) or stay in touch via Facebook.

Groups of visitors larger than 10 persons are kindly asked to schedule their visits with the Synagogue office at least a day beforehand.

Both the library and the Mikveh are also accessible during the Synagogue’s opening hours. Please contact us to arrange your visit.

The Synagogue functions solely through the generous support of visitors and benefactors, and receives no governmental support. We therefore welcome your donations.
