We Stand with Israel!

Rabbi Stephen Listfield

Rabbi Listfield leads us in study, prayer and fellowship nine times a year, coming to us in Huntsville from his home in Atlanta.  He had a distinguished career as a full-time congregational rabbi for 40 years.  To learn about our rabbi, see his bio here




We went up Green Mountain to the Nature Trail, we enjoyed the pretty green trail, the pond with ducks, geese, turtles, and fish, and the pavilion was a good place to enjoy the view. The company wasn’t bad, either!

LAG B’OMER, 2024

A cookout, games, and a nice afternoon made for a fun Lag B’Omer event at EC this year!



We enjoyed a delicious brunch sponsored by the Roberts Family in Memory of Ted Roberts.  Afterward, we celebrated Rabbi Listfield’s 50th anniversary of his rabbinical ordination, and we also had the IDF liaison speak to us about Israel today.

PURIM 2024!

We had over 65 people join us for our Purim Shpiel, a short Service, and the Hot Dog Supper. The Sphiel’s producers and cast did a wonderful job. The youngest actors, the ladies of the pageant, were especially adorable!


Our Family Mitzvah Day was a huge success! After a brief service, we painted rocks to give to loved ones; wrote letters to IDF soldiers; cleaned toys in our children’s room; made pizzas for our participants; and drew designs on fabric to create a community quilt. Thanks to all who joined in these activities and those who helped organize and volunteer at the various stations. A meaningful and productive day!

 Day of Prayer at the US Space & Rocket Center 2024

Etz Chayim Synagogue & Temple B’nai Sholom sent representatives to the special Day of Prayer.  They enjoyed meeting all the other different religious leaders and listening to a wonderful Choir that was provided for their enjoyment.
