Congregant Gatherings

Congregant Gatherings

As a large congregation, we recognize the importance of small group connection and we create many opportunities for learning, socializing, and enjoying local culture together. These gatherings generally occur in the evening hours or on weekends.

For weekday gatherings at the temple, check out these opportunities.

Interfaith Group

What Emanu-El Means When Using the Term “Interfaith”

When Emanu-El says “interfaith” in the context of “interfaith couple” or “interfaith family” or “people in interfaith relationships,” we’re inclusive of both immediate and extended families – interfaith couples where one person is Jewish and one is not, couples that include converts to Judaism who still have non-Jewish relatives, people with one Jewish parent, parents of intermarried children, grandparents of children being raised by intermarried parents, etc.

Interfaith families may include those who identify their family as Jewish, as more than one religion, as a “faithist” couple – one that tries to connect two partners’ point’s of view, one Jewish with a belief in a higher power and the other, an atheist looking at different interpretations and connections to Jewish traditions and custom, or who are unsure of how they identify. Our goal is to meet these families where they are and facilitate deeper connection to Jewish life. In addition, we recommend interfaithfamily.com as a valuable resource.

Men’s Group rabbi jonathan singer

Men’s Group events are congregant-only and require registration.

Men of Congregation Emanu-El have a monthly opportunity to socialize and study with a member of the clergy at a private home. This cross-generational group provides a small group experience so important to building community. All events are 9:30 – 11:30 am unless otherwise noted. Men’s Group events are congregant only and require registration.

Thanks to a donation from a member of the Men’s Group, the majority of gatherings are now offered for free.

Tour the Tenderloin with the Men’s GroupImage result for tenderloin sf

Sunday, June 24, 2018
9:30am meeting time

Cost: $20/person
Location is given upon registration

Join the Men’s Group for this unique 90 minute tour of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood led by the Mayor of the Tenderloin, Del Seymour, formerly one of the biggest drug dealers in the Tenderloin. Del turned his life around and started a very effective nonprofit, Code Tenderloin, which gets techies from nearby tech companies to train homeless residents in the Tenderloin how to write code and use computers. Del then teaches these “students” how to draft resumes and interview for jobs. He then goes back to the tech companies and implores them to hire the graduates of his program. In that way, Del has gotten dozens of homeless people jobs and saved many lives. Del supports Code Tenderloin by giving tours. He is on the Mayor’s Committee on Homelessness and the Board of Directors of St. Anthony’s and is an extraordinary person. It will be an amazing experience that will include seeing the finest sculpture garden in the city, as well stopping by St. Anthony’s dining hall. Afterwards, enjoy a brunch at an excellent nearby restaurant.

Register now.
