Hewlett-East Rockaway Jewish Centre/Congregation Etz Chaim (HERJC) is a warm, vibrant, traditional-egalitarian Conservative congregation. Our diverse, forward-thinking community is one in which learning, prayer and social action flourish.
Since its founding in 1949, HERJC has been recognized for creating a welcoming environment in which each member—regardless of age, stage of life or background—feels a connection to one another, to the Jewish people, to the United States, to the land and state of Israel, to Judaism and to God.
We are committed to continuing to provide innovative, interesting, and thought-provoking programs that:
Foster lifelong learning from pre-school through adulthood
Celebrate our Jewish heritage
Deepen the sense of community among our Congregational family
Promote religious involvement of all members, and enhance their spiritual experience
Encourage intergenerational cooperation
Nurture the state of Israel and our relationship with it
Serve the needs of our members, the local community, the United States and K’lal Yisrael, the Jewish people throughout the world.
The Pirkei Avot says the world rests on Torah, Avoda, and G’milut Chasidim. So too does our Congregation.
