Emanu-El In The Neighborhood

Emanu-El In The Neighborhood

Emanu-El in the Neighborhood is drawing national attention for its innovative approach to community building. Our goal is to let our neighbors know they are not alone and facilitate opportunities to meet, celebrate, and care for one another in our neighborhoods, as well as at the Temple. To be Jewish is to be in community.

Haven’t heard from your Neighborhood Liaison?  Contact Community Engagement Professional Rachel Schonwetter at (415) 751-2541 x171 or rschonwetter@emanuelsf.org

  4. Upcoming Neighborhood Events

Will You Host a Potluck Celebration for Your Neighbors?

Emanu-El in the neighborhood is one way to connect our members with one another. Invite your neighbors to share a potluck havdalah, shabbat dinner or brunch or a Chanukah celebration. If interested, please contact contact Rachel Schonwetter at (415) 751-2541 x171 or rschonwetter@emanuelsf.org.

Heard from our Congregants

We just hosted a Shabbat Dinner at our home two weeks ago and had an absolutely fabulous time. We felt blessed to be part of such a vibrant Jewish community, and to do our part in helping that community grow. It was also great to meet new people in our neighborhood, and to know a few more people at Temple. Overall, a top experience that we hope to repeat in the near future. I couldn’t be more effusive in my recommendation to host one of these dinners.
—Nick Josefowitz, 94109

I’m glad we were able to host a neighborhood event because it’s nice to have a local community in our neighborhood within the large Emanu-El community across the Bay Area. I’ve already run into people in Cole Valley that I first met at our neighborhood event.
—Paul Levin

Nothing anyone would have said was going to relieve our worry or our fears but the anonymous congregant who fed us that first night made a meaningful difference and we remain grateful.
—Jennifer Kaufman

 


Cole Valley/Pacific Heights Neighborhood Havdalahhavdalah
Saturday, December 2
6:30 pm

“Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it,” says the fourth of ten commandments. And Emanu-El in your Neighborhood plans to do just that as it ushers in the new week at the close of Shabbat. Join together with Emanu-El clergy and your neighbors for an intimate Havdalah experience. Havdalah is layered with blessings and symbols; wine is for taste; the spices are for smell; the candle is for sight; the blessings are spoken, sung, and heard. What better way to celebrate than with a neighborhood gathering potluck.

Children are welcome! Please bring one item that will serve at least six adults from the following list.

If your last name begins with:
A – H: Appetizer, snack, or finger food
I – R: Salad
S – Z: Dessert

No pork or shellfish, please. Vegetarian items encouraged. Shavua Tov and we look forwarding to seeing you!

Please register.
