Etz Chaim and Aish Philadelphia have entered into a new collaboration. Both organizations have a rich history of engaging the greater community in Jewish education and engagement for many decades. Beginning on January 1st, 2019, these two entities will work together as one, named Aish Chaim.
Combining the best of both organizations, Aish Chaim is a platform for every individual Jewish person off all ages in Greater Philadelphia to find their place among ‘The Tribe’. With a rich blend of learning and engagement programs, and spirit-filled Shabbat services with optional learning groups, Aish Chaim is truly welcoming for all those who choose to join in. We hope to see you soon at a program of Shabbat services !
