             Join Us for Shabbat!

Etz Chaim is a community, as well as a congregation. We are single, married, widowed and divorced. We are LGBTQ, and we are straight. We are single parents, interfaith families, coupled parents, Jews by birth and Jews by choice. We are proud of this diversity and provide a variety of ways for each individual to express their Judaism. 

Our Mission:  Congregation Etz Chaim provides Northwest Arkansas an open door where people of all backgrounds can feel at home to learn about and explore Jewish identity, spirituality, and culture; and effect change in our community.

Join us on Friday evenings to welcome Shabbat.  If your not currently on our mailing list you can find Service date and times by checking back on the website or send us your email contact through the Contact Us link above.

Congregation Etz Chaim is Closing

After 18 wonderful years, Congregation Etz Chaim of Northwest Arkansas will be closing it's doors as of the end of our fiscal year, June 30, 2022. We will continue to hold our monthly service and partner with other local Jewish organizations to continue our legacy.

We thank all of our members and friends for their support and partnership over our journey. Many of our members will continue to be in the NWA area and therefore we are hopeful for continued opportunities to come together as a Jewish community.
