Etz Chaim is a vibrant and dynamic congregation located in the heart of the Jewish area in the north of Leeds. We are dedicated to promoting Jewish life and Torah values combined with involvement in modern life and engagement with contemporary culture.
We encourage youth, social and cultural activities both within our congregation and in co-operation with local and national organisations.
We hold daily morning and evening services, Shabbat children’s services, thriving social and cultural activities, and a leisure club for the ‘more mature’ members of the congregation.
Our dedicated clergy team which includes Rabbi and Rebbetzin Shalom and Rikki Kupperman, and Reverend Anthony Gilbert conduct a wide range of educational programmes for various age groups and levels and maintains close and personal relationships with all our members.
True to our commitment to promote all the aspects of Jewish life, we operate under the Etz Chaim ‘umbrella’ Gourmet Foods, the only Kosher butcher shop in Yorkshire, a Jewish book and gift shop, and the mikvah which serves the people of Leeds and surrounding area.
But what is most important, is that when you are a member of Etz Chaim, you are a part of an extended family that will always be with you, sharing your joys and sorrows.
