Weddings

At Congregation Emanu-El, we strive to make each wedding an authentic reflection of your Jewish faith and commitment to each other. We welcome all denominations of Jewish faith in the sacred spaces of our Main and Martin Meyer Sanctuaries. All couples meet with the rabbi of their choice, discussing the ceremony and meaning behind the building of a Jewish home.

Our rabbis and cantor are available to officiate at weddings of Jewish couples and interfaith couples. Interfaith couples must agree to meet the Temple’s criteria for interfaith marriages.

The criteria are:

  1. That the couple plan to have a Jewish home and, if they have children, the children be raised as Jews;
  2. That they enroll in an introduction to Judaism class, preferably the one offered by Congregation Emanu-El.
  3. That they join a synagogue.

Our clergy do not co-officiate with clergy of another religion.

Our Main Sanctuary is used by the whole community for a variety of events including wedding receptions, concerts, lectures, conferences and meetings. Its soaring interior is capped by the Temple’s magnificent and famous dome. Soft light is cast by the black-and-gold chandeliers and two stunning stained glass windows that glow on either side of the room.

Adjoining the Main Sanctuary is the Martin Meyer Sanctuary. Popular for wedding ceremonies, musical events and lectures, this space has a state-of-the-art sound system, a theatrical lighting system, and highly acclaimed acoustics. Whatever event we organize, we’ll make it a memorable experience each time.

To learn more about our available event venues, please contact Svetlana Leykin at (415) 751-2541 x 123


It is customary to make a contribution in a couple’s honor, such as to the Temple’s Lifecycle Fund.
