Congregation Etz Chaim is an engaging and inclusive synagogue located in East Cobb, Marietta. Founded over 40 years ago by Dr. Stephen King, our congregation’s first president, with Rabbi Emeritus, Shalom Lewis as our first Rabbi, we embrace egalitarian Conservative Judaism in a multigenerational environment. At Etz Chaim, creating meaningful Jewish experiences is part of our culture. There is something for everyone. Our synagogue is our family, rich in faith, culture, commitment and tradition. Our programming appeals to our diverse community. From small gatherings to events that bring us all together, our dynamic community is a welcoming environment for all. We invite you to get engaged in our community.

Religious Life
Religious life is at the heart of Etz Chaim. Founded on the principles of the Conservative movement, with an egalitarian vision, Creating Meaningful Jewish Experiences starts in the shul. In addition to holiday services, we offer twice daily minyanim, Shabbat evening and morning services, as well as Junior Congregation. For our younger children, Shabbat morning, we have Camp Shabbat and offer babysitting. Our Preschool hosts a Tot Shabbat once a month on Friday early evening for our young families, as well as Tot Shabbat once a month on Saturday morning. We also provide opportunities for our interfaith families to come together and learn about Judaism.

Exceptional Programming
Etz Chaim has a full schedule of exceptional programming from Torah, to Movies @ the Etz, and Shabbat in the Park. We are committed to Judaism and lifelong learning. Congregants are engaged in our award-winning affinity groups such as Sisterhood, Men’s Club (FJMC) and our Youth Department, including one of the most active chapters in the region, Sababa USY!

A Commitment to Education
The pursuit of Jewish knowledge is a lifelong one, and the you’ll find a Jewish educational program or opportunity at Congregation Etz Chaim that’s a perfect fit for every member of your family, young and old alike.

Our preschool program is child-directed to meet the needs of the children at their developmental level to foster individual growth. New this year is our Transitions Class for five-year-old’s who are looking for a combination of preschool fun interwoven with kindergarten competencies.

Our Religious School’s goal is to instill a love of Judaism and working knowledge of Jewish practice and community (kehilla). Our curriculum teaches Hebrew decoding, having a relationship with God, Israel, holiday rituals and practice. Our spiral curriculum allows for the students to build upon what they learn each year.

Our Adult Education Program, Lilmode (Lifelong, Impactful Learning Made for you!) offers opportunities for adults to continue expanding the horizons of Jewish learning.
