Gentlemen of the El,

 

The first Men’s Group gathering of 2022 is scheduled for 9:30 am – 11:00 am on Sunday, January 9th. Due to the rapid spread of Omicron, the January Men’s Group will meet virtually. We welcome you to a Men’s Coffee Talk with Rabbi Jonathan Singer where we will share how we, as male-identifying adults, navigate disagreements in our families around vaccines, politics, meeting in-person, etc.

 

L’shalom,

Rabbi Jonathan

MLK Commemoration Shabbat Service
Jan 14 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

In response to the rapidly growing spread of Omicron, we are suspending in-person Friday night worship for the next few weeks, including for the MLK Pulpit Exchange at both Emanu-El and Third Baptist Church. Our medical advisors have recommended this course with the hope that we will be able to gather again soon to welcome in Shabbat as a community.

The MLK Pulpit Exchange is an integral part of our community partnership with Third Baptist Church, and we look forward to hosting it each year. We know that the last few years have been challenging for all of us and we’ve had to be flexible. While we look forward to the day we can host this event in person again, we do hope that you will join us virtually for what is sure to be a beautiful service with Rev. Amos Brown on Friday night. 

Learn more about the weekend here.

All ages welcome!

Shabbat Morning Service – M. Zuercher and N. Coffman
Jan 15 @ 10:45 am – 12:30 pm

Join us for In-Person Shabbat Morning Services in our Martin Meyer Sanctuary along with one of our b'nei mitzvah celebrants! 

To best ensure we can provide a safe and sacred experience, please note the following:

 

  • Service will be in the Martin Meyer Sanctuary. 
  • Capacity is limited to allow attendees to social distance if they are more comfortable doing so.
  • Advance registration is required. 
  • Masking (with surgical or N/KN95 masks) is required for all Emanu-El events. Because Omicron is more transmissible than previous variants, the CDC recommends taking greater precautions to avoid the coronavirus, which includes discontinuing the use of cloth masks and instead utilizing surgical or N/KN95 masks. This policy is in place regardless of vaccination status for all indoor, outdoor, on-site and off-site services and life cycle events.
  • Full vaccination status is required for those eligible when participating in our programs. Consistent with city, state, CDC and other public health authority guidance, COVID-19 vaccines are the most important and effective tool in preventing COVID-19 disease, especially severe illness and death. Per updated SFDPH guidelines, a fully vaccinated individual means:
    • The individual is two weeks past completing the full initial course of vaccines AND
    • One week past receiving a booster of any type, once eligible for a booster.
  • Please have your proof of vaccination and ID ready before approaching the front gate at Emanu-El.
  • Those ineligible for vaccination (including children under the age of 5) must be tested via PCR or rapid antigen within 72 hours of visiting Emanu-El (please be prepared to show proof of negative test upon entry).
  • All clergy have been vaccinated and are routinely tested.
  • No food or drinks will be allowed at this time.
  • Please review our COVID-19 on-site event protocols so you’ll know what to expect. We're so excited to welcome you back to into our beautiful sanctuary.
