Here is a sampling of what’s happening at Congregation Etz Chayim:

Adult B’nai Mitzvah Classes

Did you miss the opportunity to study for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah as a young adult?  Whether you would like to take this opportunity to be called to the Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah or you would enjoy exploring the ancient melodies of prayer Torah and Haftarah -this is your chance!
While basic Hebrew reading is a requirement, you don’t need a singing voice to experience the musical codes that have existed for centuries.

Book Club

Our group meets informally four to five times per year to discuss books with Jewish themes. Participants are most welcome to attend any or all the sessions.

Nusach at Noon with Cantor Tracy

Thursdays at noon. A lunch & learn drop-in program.  If you want to learn more about what goes on in the Shabbat and daily services, or you would enjoy participating as a leader or an active congregant but feel you want to learn more first, this is your chance.  Please call the synagogue office to register.  $5.00 per class at the door.

Programs For Russian Speaking Seniors

The holidays are a special part of Jewish life.  We are thrilled to invite the Russian-speaking seniors of Winnipeg to join us to celebrate the holidays in a unique way.  It is an opportunity to meet with old and new friends and participate in a meaningful dialogue about the joyous holidays throughout the year.   This program will be conducted in Russian. Refreshments will be served. Check out our Calendar for upcoming dates.
