Executive Board Members

President-Noam Kleinman 

Contact Information: [email protected]

Good Morning, or afternoon, or whatever. I'm Noam Kleinman your Sababa President. I'm a Senior at Wheeler High School, and have a wide variety of interests and likes, so much that there's always something to talk about. If you have something weird or unusual that you like, come talk to me! I'd love to learn more about things. To sign off, here's a weird thought: For my last meal before execution I'd get 40 boxes of Ice Cream Sundae Pop-tarts, eat half, and use the rest to coat myself in Pop-tarts to make the executioner really uncomfortable.

Hey Sababa,
Ben Surasky here, your '16-'17 Membership/Kadima VP! I'm just a southern GIY born in Northside Hospital. I'm a 10th grader at Pope High School. My favorite kitchen utensil is the Sporktula (spatula+fork+spoon) and my favorite disease is the Zika Virus. I guess that's about it except that I'm super excited for this year and can't wait for what this year has to offer!

If you ever need anything you know who to go to. A song exists illustrating this; it goes,"Lenaon me, when you are unsure, she'll be your friend. She will help you find Etz Chaaaiiimmm."


Etz Chaim is...

Congregation Etz Chaim is a progressive, egalitarian Conservative synagogue that provides meaningful Jewish experiences in a welcoming, engaging environment.  We offer:


Inspiring religious services
Educational, social, and cultural activities, serving multi-generational needs
A caring community that supports each other through both joyful and challenging life cycle events
Connections with the broader community and opportunities for Tikkun Olam...

Our intention, in all activities, is to provide an environment of warmth and an opportunity for personal growth. We celebrate together, we pray together, and we learn together, making Etz Chaim truly a home away from home. 


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Come and get involved with your community!
