Tree of Life

The Hebrew term etz chaim (literally “tree of life”) is a common one in Jewish life, often used to refer to the Torah. At CBS we honor and share in the beauty of our community's connection to Jewish life by creating engraved leaves to add to our Tree of Life within the main lobby. Leaves are created for many different reasons just as there are so many ways to be part of the branches of Jewish life.
