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.

Upcoming Tribe for Men Events:

The Tribe for Men’s TURKEY BOWL VII
Gentlemen, we (as in your fellow Tribe member Mike Edlelstein) are once again proud to host the tradition of our Thanksgiving morning football game! We’ve built up quite a tradition together – what started as a few guys tossing around a football on Thanksgiving morning in 2011 (the year Hershenson bought his cleats) has turned into a full-fledged family event on Thanksgiving morning. Come on out to Golden Gate Park, bring the kids, bring your wife and enjoy a morning of good ol’ fun playing football.

 
WHEN: Thanksgiving Morning, 8am coffee, stretch, throw around the ball, etc…kick-off usually around 9am. You’ll all be home by 11.
WHERE: Golden Gate Park, fields near 7th and Lincoln
WHAT IF I’M HUNGRY?: Doughnuts, coffee, beer.
 
RSVP if you’re in. Invite more friends. Come for an hour if that’s all you can do, show up late, leave early – it’s all about the fun. And betting who gets hurt first.


Women’s Group

WomensShabbaton2012The Congregation Emanu-El Women’s Group offers a wide variety of diverse programs, spanning all demographics of the temple. Please stay tuned for upcoming programs this fall!
