....in Ramona you'll find a small warmhearted group who will welcome your family with open arms.
In 1980 a few Jewish families got together to form a congregation. Like many others, we had moved to Ramona seeking clean air, an excellent school district, and a rural atmosphere. Here in Ramona, we found good neighborhoods and a small-town friendliness. Still it wasn't enough. We wanted to hold on to our Jewish traditions and values, and pass on our heritage to our children.
So - we established Congregation Etz Chaim, a tree of life, which embodied our desire for the future.
We hold Shabbat services monthly on Friday evenings where we read from the Torah, sing and socialize. We hold High Holiday services, special celebrations for Sukkot, Chanukkah, Tu B'Shvat, Purim and Lag B'Omer as well as a community Seder for Passover.
We invite you to join with us at any of these occasions and help nourish the Jewish community within Ramona.
