Congregation Eitz Or has been Seattle’s alternative/Jewish Renewal community since its inception in 1990. A warm and welcoming community that feels like a Havurah, Eitz Or holds innovative Shabbat services, High holiday services, other Jewish holiday events, and learning opportunities throughout the year. An example of one of our most recent events was an Earth-based Judaism program held at the Big Four Ice Caves in the Cascades.
Members range from those who are just learning Jewish practices to long-time observers of Jewish traditions and culture.
We welcome families of all kinds, singles, and people of all ages and backgrounds. Jewish Renewal Communities, such as ours, have always led the way in including women and LGBTQ communities in all aspects of leadership and liturgy.
