Walk towards Healing and Reflection in the Redwoods

Meet at the front gate of the Temple to walk to the Redwoods together.

Join Rabbis Sydney Mintz and Beth Singer, along with our musicians, as we journey together from the Temple through the Arguello Gate and into the Redwoods for guided meditation, music, silence, chanting and healing prayers. 

Never been to the redwoods on Yom Kippur before? Join us! Annual tradition of going with Emanu-El to the redwoods? Join us (again!). Love the intimate experience of the healing service of past years? Join us this year to experience sacred space and time in the Redwoods.

HHD 2022 – Learning Session with Rabbi Stephen Pearce
Oct 5 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Learning Session with Taube Scholar and Senior Rabbi Emeritus Stephen Pearce, Ph.D

 

The Architectural and Decorative Secrets of Temple Emanu-El

 

With the Temple campus about to undergo the most major renovation and expansion in its 100-year history, this workshop will highlight the outstanding architectural and decorative features that we’ve all walked past without taking a closer look. The Courtyard mosaic reveals the symbol for the Tribe of Ephraim. Is that unicorn? The Hebrew is Re’em and the translation history reveals the secret.

*This virtual event will be held on Zoom.

HHD 2022 – Grit & Endurance: How to Keep Hope Alive
Oct 5 @ 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm

Grit & Endurance: How to Keep Hope Alive

Working to stop gun violence, preserve our climate, restore reproductive rights, and maintain fundamental democratic principles has become increasingly challenging. How do we hang in there and stay committed to the Jewish value of tzedek, tzedek tirdof (relentlessly pursuing justice) when things seem so difficult? 

Please join the Tzedek Council and Rabbi Jason Rodich as we hear inspiring and hopeful reflections from social justice heroes; Michael Tubbs, founder of End Poverty in California, Judi Shils, founder and Executive Director of Turning Green, and a panelist from Larkin Street Youth Services, who will share with us how they remain committed to the work of Tikkun Olam despite enormous challenges. We hope you will join us for this rare opportunity to hear from exceptional activists and leaders, witnessing hope and inspiration at a time when we all need more of both!

*This service will be in person for members, as well as livestreamed for the community.
