SCHEDULE

Mishpachot (Families): Programs for Families and Children

As my family planted for me, so do I for my children.

Talmud, Taanit 23A

Families are the roots of Emanu-El!  We know that these first few years of your child’s life are such an essential time to find your kehillah (community) and believe that we are always stronger together.  Our goal is to cultivate environments for families to meet, nosh and pray, so that you can find lasting connections with one another.  Our hope is that you will find other families to enjoy Shabbat dinners with, celebrate lifecycle events, have meaningful conversations with and to build a sense of community that will help shape who your children become!   

Please take a look below at several opportunities to find your people. 

You can reach out to Sarah Balagey for more information!


Tot Shabbat

First Friday of the month! Next Tot Shabbat is December 2, 5:00-6:00 pm.

Join us on our beautiful courtyard for kid’s dinner & teen-led activities at 5:00 pm, followed by a joyful and engaging 30-minute service geared toward children 6 and under (older siblings welcome) in Martin Meyer Sanctuary. Children are encouraged to wear their pajamas, so they’ll be ready for bedtime!

*Registration required, preferably in advance but, if unable to register, please come and we will take your information at the gate.*

Register here.


Light of Giving

Sunday, December 11, 2022

12:00-1:30 pm

Light Of Giving 2022 will benefit Hamilton Families, whose goal is to spark real change in ending family homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Join us for a celebratory event that will help support families settling into a new community. We will have some food to nosh, art to create, and good to do.
