Emanu-El B’Bayit Small Groups:Connect

Are you looking to find your people at Emanu-El? Want to build deeper relationships with others who share your interests, passions, and life experiences?
Join a B’Bayit small group to connect with our community, and get to know a small group of fellow congregants.
2021-2022 Registration is now closed.
Reach out to Rabbi Sarah Joselow Parris at [email protected] with questions.

“When two people relate to each other, authentically and humanly, God is in the electricity that surges between them.”

Martin Buber


What are B’Bayit Groups?

Emanu-El B’Bayit groups are a new way for you to find your people at Emanu-El, get to know a small group of fellow congregants well, and help make our large congregation feel small. One of Emanu-El’s strengths is the breadth and scope of our large congregation, and Emanu-El B’Bayit groups are an opportunity to help you find a sense of home and belonging within our community.

What does B’Bayit mean?

B’Bayit is Hebrew for “at home” and Emanu-El B’Bayit is our way of bringing our congregation direct to you.  B’Bayit groups will meet in homes, parks, at synagogue… anywhere they choose!  

What am I signing up for when I join a group?

You are signing up to meet ~8-10 times with the same group of congregants, about once a month from fall to spring.  At the end of this Spring, each group will have the opportunity to decide if they want to continue meeting moving forward.

Throughout the year we hope to have gatherings where all B’Bayit group members can celebrate Shabbat together at Emanu-El! 

How are B’Bayit groups organized? How many people will be in each group?

Formed by interests, geography, needs, or demographics, each group will consist of up to 20 individuals or 10 families, who join together regularly to celebrate, play, pray, and/or learn with each other. Each B’Bayit group is led by a fellow member of Emanu-El.

Will my group meet in person or virtually?

Some B’Bayit groups will be meeting virtually, some in person, and some a combination of both. Each group’s profile in the B’Bayit Marketplace includes how the group will meet.

When do B’Bayit groups meet?

Each group leader has identified a monthly day & time for their group to gather – you can find each group’s meeting schedule by looking at the groups’ profile in the B’Bayit Marketplace. Most meetings will be about 1-2 hours, depending on how much time your group wants to spend together.

Do I need to renew my membership before joining a B’Bayit group?

Yes!  B’Bayit groups are a benefit of Emanu-El membership.  If you would like to join a group make sure to renew your membership today at emanuelsf.org/about-us/membership

What if I don’t see a group that interests me?

Get in touch with Rabbi Sarah Joselow Parris ([email protected]) and we will guide you on the process of designing your own new B’Bayit group.

Do any other synagogues do things like this?

Yes!  In launching Emanu-El B’Bayit small groups, we are particularly grateful for the thought partnership of Temple Beth El in Charlotte, as well as the small groups resources from Central Synagogue in New York, The Temple in Atlanta, and the Union for Reform Judaism.
