This Week’s Congregation:
Etz Chayim Progressive Synagogue was established in 1951 to provide education for the local Jewish children in Melbourne’s southern suburbs. They are a small community consisting of approximately 150 family units of mostly retirees and, recently, a growing number of younger families. Their rabbi, Allison Conyer, is joined each week by a team of cantorial soloists and a musician to lead their weekly Shabbat morning services and monthly Kabbalat Shabbat services. Highlights of their year include their originally-written Purim Shpiel, Women’s seder, and musical concerts. The congregation has an active group of volunteers who ensure the community is well looked after and their programming is accessible and engaging to people of all ages. Etz Chayim is a warm, friendly, and welcoming community that nurtures spirituality, learning, social connection and Jewish continuity.
