Team Etz H'Chayim



What does Etz H'Chayim mean?  Etz H' Chayim translates as "The Tree of Life" in Hebrew.  Etz H’Chayim is mentioned ten times in the Bible beginning in Genesis 2 and ending in Revelation 22.  The book of Proverbs’ wisdom is metaphorically considered the tree of life as wisdom for those who take hold of the Lord’s instructions and ways.  And finally, Yeshua is the ultimate Tree of Life as the seed, root, trunk, Branches, and fruit.




We are a vibrant international community living to reflect our original identity as the “image and likeness” of Eternal Father through His only begotten Son, Yeshua HaMashiach.  Our core mission is to engage and participate in the Anointed One and His Anointing, by first embracing His love and secondly, promoting lifelong learning. 


"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who is wise wins souls."  Proverbs 11:30


Founder: Yisrael ben Avraham

Scripture tells us that Yeshua made no reputation for himself, something Yisrael desires to maintain today. When asked about his life, Yisrael refrains from speaking about himself because he believes "it is not about me" but the one who has sent me.  Eternal Father's love in the salvation of His son Yeshua is what qualifies him.

Yisrael has studied extensively in Israel under the careful guidance of Torah scholars and Rabbis in traditional Yeshiva and Beit Midrash (House of Study) settings.  With study being one of the highest forms of worship within Jewish culture, Yisrael seeks to bring this reality as a way of life.  It is with this passion that Etz Chayim (Tree of Life) a Judeo-Christian center for discipleship and learning was established.  His commitment is to spiritual advancement that cultivates true sanctuary, learning, and personal growth in hopes of building one new man as a global community of disciples in Yeshua the Messiah.
