For over a decade our Shiur HaChodesh for Women by Women has served to expand opportunities for advanced Judaic studies for women in Kew Gardens Hills and surrounding communities. It is a once monthly session of high-level text-based Torah study by some of the foremost women teachers and professors of Tanach, from both Israel and the United States. Our sessions are held on Wed. evenings at 7:30 P.M. for approximately 1 hour. Light refreshments are served.
The next program will ... hopefully resume in May
Benefiting the community since 2011, "Navigating the Medical System" presents a monthly lecture on a general medical topic, usually on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June, calendar permitting.

Links to the Zoom megillah readings - Rabbi Hershel Schachter has ruled that those truly in quarantine who have no other option may listen to Megillah through live hook-up or phone. Note that is normally not an acceptable way of fulfilling the Mitzvah. For those to whom this applies, Rabbi Rosenberg will read the Megillah at his home, and you may join with the links below - which will start promptly - so access the links ahead of time:
Click here for a recording of the entire Megillah, read in sections of about 3 pesukim. If you have a kosher megillah, and are able to do so, you can listen to the megillah at your own speed, and sing the words along, fulfilling your obligation in a very satisfying and complete way. Note: if there is no minyan present, the end blessing is not recited.
Come join us for some Limud Torah!

- Etz Chaim is a vibrant congregation known for the passion and decorum of its prayer, the breadth and creativity of its programming, its devotion to Israel, and its warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Congregation Etz Chaim is, first and foremost, a makom tefillah, a shul where davening with fervor is complemented by an absolute insistence on proper decorum. Whatever the background, dress, or level of knowledge of worshippers, all feel welcome in a joint effort to create a heartfelt and harmonious tefillah. Yet we recognize that this attitude is a goal for which we must constantly strive, and whose achievements can never be taken for granted.
Rabbi Moshe Rosenberg has been Rav of Etz Chaim for more than two decades, before which he served as Associate Rabbi of the Riverdale Jewish Center. A musmach of Yeshiva University, Rabbi Rosenberg has also served as an officer of the Vaad HaRabbonim of Queens and the Rabbinic Alumni of Yeshiva University, as well as a member of the Executive Board of the Rabbinical Council of America.
