Sponsor an Oneg or Kiddush on Shabbat

Sponsoring an Oneg-Shabbat after Friday evening 5:30 pm or 7:30 pm Shabbat services or a Saturday morning Kiddush is a lovely way to honor someone you love, or to celebrate an upcoming simcha. Choose from four different oneg menus, ranging from $200 to $540, or eight Kiddush menus, starting at $750. As a sponsor, your name and dedication are read from the bima, and you help us celebrate Shabbat with the warmth and community that are characteristic of our congregation.

For more details, please contact Svetlana Leykin at sleykin@emanuelsf.org or (415) 751-2541 x123.

Celebrating a Shehecheyanu Moment?

Congregation Emanu-El is an ever-present partner in the transitional moments of our members’ lives. Be it a baby naming or brit milah, bar or bat mitzvah, conversion or wedding ceremony, or a recovery from illness, the Temple clergy and staff strive to ensure that each sacred ‘Shehecheyanu Moment’ is deeply fulfilling and personal.

A donation to the Emanu-El Life-Cycle Fund is a lovely way to mark a personal life-cycle experience, to honor friends or family celebrating a happy milestone or in gratitude for the services the clergy provide during these profound moments. Donate online or call the Development office at (415) 750-7554.
