Bikkur Cholim – Visiting the Sick
Congregation Emanu-El’s clergy rely on our members to inform us when a congregant is ill or in need of a visit. If you know of a member who needs our services, please click here to fill out a confidential form which will be forwarded to one of our clergy. The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center, Jewish Healing Center, is available to help those who are unaffiliated.
