Tree of Life

In Jewish tradition, the Tree of Life connects Heaven and Earth with its branches reaching upward and its roots firmly planted in the earth.  Our Torah is referred to as Eitz Chayim, our tree of life connecting God and man. The symbol of the Tree of Life represents Congregation Beth Torah’s connection to God and connection to our Torah.

Our Tree of Life was lovingly dedicated as a gift to our founding rabbi, Rabbi Mark H. Levin at his celebration  ceremony, June 1,2014. This is a gift we will enjoy for many years. With your support, the purchase of leaves will help us firmly root our community in our synagogue.  Leaves can be purchased to commemorate a mitzvah or simcha.  Have your name or family name engraved on a leaf today.

To order a leaf, or for questions, call Laura at the Beth Torah office (913) 498-2212 or email her at
