Congregation Emanu-El is working in partnership with the Reimagine End of Life – a week of asking big questions about life and death in San Francisco from April 16-22. Reimagine is a community-wide exploration of death and celebration of life through creativity and conversation. Drawing on the arts, spirituality, healthcare, and design, the weeklong series of events helps break down taboos and bring diverse communities together in wonder, preparation, and remembrance. This year, Reimagine will feature several events right here at Temple Emanu-El.

Reimagine Earth Day (Part 1): “An Inconvenient Sequel” Film Screening
Saturday, April 21, 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Join all of San Francisco on the eve of Earth Day at a screening of the documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.” While we’re losing treasured species and ecosystems everyday, we can still band together to celebrate our earth and help protect the life it sustains.

A decade after “An Inconvenient Truth” brought the climate crisis into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes – in moments both private and public, funny and poignant – as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

Reimagine Earth Day (Part 2): Remembrance Ceremony for the Environment 
Saturday, April 21, 7:30 – 9:30 pm

Join all of San Francisco on the eve of Earth Day. Come listen and learn, sing and speak, take time for silence, and honor the animals, the plants, and the environments we have lost in the past year. Then, let’s band in solidarity for what we have to work for, today and in the future. Featuring a communal reading of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax in one of the City’s most beautiful sanctuaries.

Register here.

Closing Remembrance Ceremony
Sunday, Apr 22, 2018, 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: TBD (co-hosted by Emanu-El)

What would it feel like for us all to come together, just because, to remember those we miss or honor? Join us for this special, free Remembrance Ceremony, led by Rabbi Sydney Mintz of Congregation Emanu-El. People of all faiths – or no faith – are welcome! We will meet at the temple at 1:30pm, and then go as a group on a meditative walk to a secret, sacred outdoor location. Please wear comfortable shoes and bring a photo or an object of significance.

Previous events:

Death Over Dinner with the Young Adult Community
Friday, April 13, 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Note: This event takes place a few days prior to the Reimagine End of Life conference.

How we want to die – represents the most important and costly conversation America isn’t having. We have gathered dozens of medical and wellness leaders to cast an unflinching eye at end of life, and we have created an uplifting interactive adventure that transforms this seemingly difficult conversation into one of deep engagement, insight and empowerment. We invite you to gather friends and family and fill a table.

Join us on Friday night April 13th before the Late Shabbat as we delve into the important questions that so often we try to get away from or not even ask. We will gather for dinner and a guided conversation to ask and answer these most important questions.

Miscarriage and Infant Death: Making Sense of What Never Makes Sense
Monday, April 16, 9:30 – 11:00 am

Although 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage and many parents in our communities have lost children, both of these losses can be taboo subjects and unspeakable. Join us to explore how we create community, offer loving support, open up conversations and create a safe space for those who have suffered a loss.

Rabbi Sydney Mintz in conversation with:

  • Abby Porth, ED of the JCRC and co-founder of the Jewish Community Memory Garden at Home of Eternity in Colma, California
  • Summer Segal, Ph.D., MS, LCGC Clinical Instructor, Department of Pediatrics Integrated Pediatric Pain and Palliative Care Program (IP3) Biochemical Genetic Medicine Clinic, UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital
  • Alexis Roberts-Keiner, Artist, Advocate for the Bereaved and President of the Dead Baby Club
