Etz Chaim is an Orthodox, Sephardic Congregation located in Indianapolis, IN. We are a member of the American Sephardi Federation/Sephardic House.

"While not the earliest settlement of Jews in Indiana, Indianapolis wouldbecome the center of the Jewish population in the state. The first Jews to the city came in 1849.

Many of these Jews were peddlers, who took advantage of the blossoming city."
