Congregant Gatherings


Women of Emanu-El 

A group created for women-identified members of all ages and all family compositions, to join together to strengthen the voice of women in our community and help to foster personal and spiritual growth through various activities and community-building events.

Presidio Hikes: Join other Emanu-El Women for hikes into the Presidio. Casual, fun and energizing. Dogs allowed. Just bring a water bottle, snacks, good walking shoes, and your full self. All of these will take place on Sunday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30 am. If you have children in Youth and Family Education, you can still participate while your children are in class. Join us! Check the calendar for upcoming dates.

Lost Marbles ! November 14, 7:00 -9:00 PM

Judaism is a religion of action. To that end, take swift and decisive action and join Tribe members for a drink (or two) at Lost Marbles Brewpub! *First round donated by an anonymous member. We kindly request that each person attending bring along another member (but don’t let this request be a reason you don’t show up).   We look forward to seeing old faces and new, and building community!
