Emanu-El Driven to Care
Yearly collection drives to support our local community
Share your bread with the hungry, and take the wretched poor into your home; when you see the naked, clothe them. (Isaiah 58:7)
In Judaism, the mitzvah of Tzedekah (giving to those in need) is not considered a good deed or a generous act—instead it is considered something that should be done simply because it is the right thing to do. At Emanu-El we want to help you achieve this goal through our partnerships with various local non-profit agencies who care for others during their time of need. An easy way to do this is to donate specific items to our monthly collection drives featured on this page. Below are instructions on how you can participate.
Start your new year with this meaningful mitzvah!
Non Perishable Food Wish List:
TUNA & CANNED MEAT
CANNED FRUITS & VEGETABLES
Please NO rice, pasta, cereal, or glass.
Drop off at Congregation Emanu-El, in the collection bin outside the main office or inside the main entrance gate, Mon-Fri, 9am–5pm
Thank you for being part of this great mitzvah!
Jewish Family and Children’s Services Food Bank is also accepting donations during the holidays. Please help increase food security and reduce hunger.
Year-round Collection Bins:
We have 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.
