Our Trees of Life Story Corner
This month starting from June 4 up to June 6, is the holiday of Shavuot; a holiday in which we celebrate our receiving of the Torah. It is only fitting that during this special time that we take a small break from sharing individual stories in order to showcase and celebrate the history of our own house of Torah.
Rather than a recorded interview, this month we bring a beautifully written article by one of congregants and a Historian, Sharon Graham. The article is entitled "CONGREGATION ETZ CHAYIM AND ITS GHOSTS: The Memorial Rooms of a Living House of Worship." This article was published in the 2021 Journal of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada. Just as it is important to know each other better, it is also important to know the space to which we call our spiritual home more deeply including the congregations that had previously called this space home, how Congregation Etz Chayim came to be and how we memorialize these history and family members who came before us.
