Congregation Emanu-El believes it is important to have a community to reach out to should a member family suffer a loss. At Emanu-El our rabbis and cantor are here to help in that time of need. Not only do our clergy perform funerals and memorial services, but they also provide spiritual counseling if requested.  

To reach our clergy regarding a recent loss please contact Ariana Estoque or call (415) 750-7552.

To schedule an on-site memorial service please contact Svetlana Leykin  or call (415) 751-2541 x123.

Our clergy (if available) can perform on-site non-member funerals/memorial services but there will be an officiating fee and a facility usage fee.  For more information please contact Svetlana Leykin at the email or phone number listed above.

For information on sitting Shiva please click here: Shiva Minyan Information

Giving Tzedakah to remember a loved one is a mitzvah.

Please consider making an additional donation to the Emanu-El Life Cycle fund in gratitude for the services our clergy provided during these profound moments. The Life Cycle fund makes it possible for all members, no matter their economic circumstance, to have the services of the clergy during these transitional times in their lives. Donate online or contact the Development Office at (415) 750-7554.
