POSTPONED: State of the Union with City Supervisor Rafael Mandelman
RSVP Required
Open to Members

Please note, this program has been postponed until further notice. The Tzedek Council invites you for a special conversation with Supervisor Rafael Mandelman around homelessness, mental and behavioral health crises, and other key issues that our city is facing. This is a rare opportunity to engage with a City Supervisor, ask the questions that are important to you, and learn more about what you can do to make our community more equitable for all. This conversation will be moderated by Rabbi Ryan Bauer. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP. Participants are invited to send in questions for Supervisor Mandelman at the time of registration. Supervisor Mandelman has served on the Board of Supervisors since July 2018. He has worked to address the City’s mental health and substance use crises. He represents District 8 and currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Rules Committee and as a member of the Government Audit and Oversight Committee of the Board of Supervisors.


G-House Sunday Night Dinners are back!
Sunday nights
Dinner Sign Up

We are thrilled to share with you that our partnership with the G-House is back up and running!  Run by the Larkin Street Youth Services, G-House is a 30-bed housing program for San Francisco homeless young adults (ages 18-24, transitioning from adolescence to adulthood), providing residents with tools to remove the obstacles in their life which threaten a successful transition to independent living. We are excited for our community to sign up to sponsor a Sunday night meal for the incredible clients and community at the G-House. 
Due to continued COVID protocols in place with G-House, we are not yet able to have in-person dinners (hoping this can occur by early 2022…stay tuned!).  HOWEVER, we can now provide home cooked meals in addition to still being able order from a local restaurant.  More precise instructions for food options and delivery will be sent to you following your sign-up.


Help Afghan Refugees
Jewish Family and Children’s Services East Bay 

JFCS East Bay continues to be very busy welcoming new refugees! In August alone, they resettled 77 Afghans in the East Bay community. To put this number into context, that’s about what we might typically expect to resettle in half a year. With your donations and support, all of you are part of making this possible. As the Jewish new year is here, this is a time for renewal and hope for the future, as we all work together to support our new neighbors as their lives in our community begin.

Please consider purchasing something from this Amazon Wish List. These items are shipped to JFCS office in Concord and put directly into the hands of refugees.


Join the SF Black-Jewish (& Allies) Unity Group
Partner: SF Black-Jewish (& Allies) Unity Group
Meets 2nd Thursday of each month
To sign up or for more information, email Rachel Montana 

In 2016, Rabbi Beth Singer and congregant Malcolm Gissen collaborated with leaders within the African American community in San Francisco to create the SF Black-Jewish Unity Group. Since then, the two communities have been working together to fight injustice and bring about change. All are welcome to join the group. As of now, the Unity Group will not hold in-person meetings. Monthly meetings have moved to ZOOM every second Thursday of the month from, 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm.


Congregation Emanu-El Supports Get 1 Give 1 
A people-to-people initiative to speed the spread of COVID-19 vaccines worldwide
In the Bay Area, we are fortunate to have ample access to free COVID-19 vaccines, which has resulted in one of the highest rates of vaccinations in the country. We can give that peace of mind to another by supporting the cost of a vaccine. Get 1 Give 1 contributions go to COVAX-AMC, the global mechanism created to buy and distribute vaccines to 92 lower-income countries. All money contributed goes directly to purchasing vaccines (instead of overhead costs). Through this simple act, we can expand protection against COVID-19 and end the pandemic faster.


 

JFCS Jewish Family Children's Services

Year-round Collection Bins
We have traditionally held clothing and household collection bins year-round at Emanu-El for St. Anthony’s and non-perishable food collection bins for both the San Francisco Food Bank and Jewish Family and Children Services.
