Support youth experiencing homelessness with a Sunday night dinner delivery!
Jul 19 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Support youth experiencing homelessness with a Sunday night dinner delivery!

 

For over two years, every Sunday night Emanu-El congregants have provided dinner for the youth living at G-House (a transitional home for youth experiencing homelessness run by Larkin Street Youth Services), by bringing food and then breaking bread together. While these dinners at G-House have been cancelled due to social distancing, we still need your help supporting the youth living there.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Emanu-El volunteers are continuing to do this mitzvah by ordering a Sunday night meals (a lot of pizza!) from local restaurants and having it them delivered to G-House. These dinners are very meaningful, as each dinner we give lets the youth know that our Emanu-El community continues to care for them despite the current challenges.

We look forward to resuming these in person dinners at G-House when it is safe for all.
Please sign up here to sponsor a Sunday evening dinner and for more details!

How to be an Antiracist Book Club (With Rabbi Ryan Bauer)

Join Rabbi Ryan Bauer to discuss the book, How to be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi at 5pm, after listening to the author speak at 4pm sponsored by Prince George County. Reading a book will not end racism, but the idea that learning leads to action is a foundational Jewish value, and we all have an obligation to educate ourselves.

The group will meet:

July 20 at 5pm

Emanu-El Virtual Choir
Jul 22 @ 12:00 pm – Jul 29 @ 9:00 am

We want YOUR punim (face) among the 100 Emanu-El members who will join (from home) to learn and sing a song that will help us welcome in what we all hope will be a very sweet new year! You don’t need to be an amazing singer, just bring your love for our community and we’ll help you. This will be fun!

  • We are looking for 100 congregants who can spend a couple of hours at home learning a very simple, familiar, and easy-to-sing song. We will provide a recording (and sheet music for those who read it, but it is not necessary that you read music).
  • You will then record yourself, using your phone, following these simple directions provided by our partners at Kosher Style Records. Feel free to check out the instructions now so that you understand what will be involved.
  • Our voices will be edited and blended together in post-production to create a very special High Holy Day message for our community.
  • Register by Tuesday, July 28, as space is limited. We will reach out shortly to the first 100 members who sign up.

This virtual choir is part of the Cantors' Concert Series, which is generously supported by Ingrid D. Tauber and Frank Taforo.
