Congregation Etz Chaim

Founded in 1996 by a small group of families, Etz Chaim has grown and evolved into a warm, welcoming community of about 150 families.

Our diverse group comprises all ages and backgrounds representing all levels of religious commitment.  Shabbatons, Classes, Chesed Activities, a Teen Minyan, Children's Programming for all ages and Acclaimed Speakers are among the many activities that you’ll enjoy with us.
The area hosts a wide variety of Jewish conveniences and institutions, including several Jewish Day Schools, Kosher supermarkets and restaurants, several Mikvahs, an extensive Eruv, a renovated and active JCC and lots of family-friendly amenities.  Travel times can be as little as 30 minutes to Manhattan.
Our doors are always open for young families and all others who wish to enjoy a relaxing, suburban Shabbat experience. To arrange a visit or learn more about us, please contact our office at (973) 597-1655 or
