Our Rabbi reading torah with a Bat Mitzvah student



Our monthly Maggid. מַגִּיד 


Dictionary.Com defines Maggid as "a wandering Jewish preacher whose sermons contained religious and moral instruction and words of comfort and hope."


Merriam-Webster.Com defines Maggid as "an itinerant Jewish preacher whose discourse on a biblical text is usually embellished by parables".


At Congregation Etz Chaim, our Maggid is our Jewish Community newsletter, telling our community of what's happened in the recent past, upcoming events, a place of recognition of members and life events, a message from leadership and moral discussions from our student rabbi.
