Shalom!

Welcome to the Tree of Life Congregation in Columbia, South Carolina.  The Tree of Life Congregation (TOL) was founded in 1896, and today is a vibrant Reform Jewish synagogue.  Our almost 300 member-families gather from throughout greater Columbia and the Midlands of SC to come together as a holy community.  The Tree of Life is our Beit T’filah – House of Prayer, Beit Midrash – House of Study, and Beit K’nesset – House of Assembly.  We are very proud of our history, and we look forward to an even brighter future.

Please feel free to join us at Temple for services or events.  We look forward to welcoming you.  Please contact the Tree of Life Congregation office (803-787-2182) for more information or to answer any questions.

The Tree of Life Congregation is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism (www.urj.org).
