Remembrance Opportunites

Congregation Emanu-El provides various opportunities for members to remember their loved ones who have passed away.

It is Jewish tradition to commemorate the anniversary of a loved one's passing through tzedakah and other deeds of kindness and through the recitation of the Kaddish Prayer. To make a donation (known as tzedakah) in memory of/in observance of the Yahrzeit of a loved one please click here.

Kaddish Prayer and Reading of Names

Congregation Emanu-El reads the names of loved ones before the Kaddish prayer at our weekly Friday night Shabbat Services. To view our upcoming shabbat schedule please click here. If for any reason you would like your loved ones name read on a different Friday please fill out the Kaddish List Addition or Change form or contact Sarah Torchin at (415) 750-7554 or by email at storchin@emanuelsf.org if you need further assistance.
