Public Health Guidelines:

Keep up to date at www.sfdph.org, by calling 311, and by signing up for San Francisco’s new alert service for official updates: text COVID19SF to 888-777. Other helpful websites include: the California Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and UCSF, for guidance about preventative actions to help stop the spread of any respiratory disease. 

Keeping Yourself and Others Healthy

Prevention Tips:

  • Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds
  • Try not to touch your eye, ears or mouth
  • Don’t shake hands; instead use a slight bow or elbow bump as a sign of welcome
  • If you haven’t done so already, get a flu shot. The flu shot not only reduces your risk of having to go to a doctor, it also helps prevent you or someone else getting the flu and Covid-19
  • Notify your health care provider if you have been exposed to someone who has Covid-19

Supporting Children in Times of Uncertainty: 

Seeing and hearing about local and world events, such as the outbreak of COVID-19, may cause children to experience stress, anxiety, and fears. We hope you will find the following resources helpful in supporting children during a time of uncertainty:

Community Support

Congregation Emanu-El is a community that supports one another in times of joy and times of uncertainty, and we are working with our partners to identify additional ways we can help each other during this challenging period. Please continue to monitor this page for updates on how you can get or give support.

As always, you can help our community through a contribution to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund. Our clergy uses these funds to assist Emanu-El members and community organizations in need.  

If You Need Help

Many community organizations remain open to provide assistance during this time:

Jewish Family and Children’s Services staff are first responders during this pandemic emergency. If you or someone you care about needs help, please call the JFCS Bay Area Critical Help Line at 415.449.3700.

  • Families and adults – For assistance, please call 415.449.1212
    • Emergency counseling assistance is offered to help cope with this emergency.
    • JFCS Food Banks are well stocked and open. Groceries and supplies will be delivered as needed in all regions.
    • Counseling, consultation, and advice services are available by phone, video conference, or in-person. 
  • Parents – For assistance, please call 415.359.2443
    • Clinical counseling continues to be offered by phone, video conference, or in-person, to answer questions and help children and parents cope with this crisis.
    • Online workshops are available to help parents understand how to best help their children with the added anxiety that they are experiencing.

Hebrew Free Loan offers interest-free, emergency bridge loans to help Jewish individuals and families in Northern California cover their living expenses during difficult and uncertain times. If you’re having trouble making ends meet because of the effects of Coronavirus, including childcare costs when schools are closed, small business losses, cancelled study abroad programs, and lost wages because you can’t go into work, they may be able to help.

Bay Area Jewish Healing Center provides spiritual care in these times of pandemic.

Shalom Bayit​​​​​ offers counseling and direct support to battered women and their children in the Jewish community.

Crisis Text Line is for older teens or young adults.

How You Can Help

Jewish Family and Children’s Services (JFCS): Apply to be a volunteer, or call 415-449-3807. JFCS offers safe opportunities for Emergency Service Volunteers, including:

  • Food Pantry: JFCS is accepting donations of non-perishable items to their Food Pantry.  Drop off at 2150 Post Street, 9:00 -5:00 pm weekdays.  

The American Red Cross: Sign up to donate blood. The Red Cross is facing a severe blood shortage due to the large number of blood drive cancellations.

Institute on Aging: Sign up as a volunteer at the Friendship Line, then their team will reach out as a need arises. Trained volunteers make and receive calls to and from individuals who are either in crisis or just in need of a compassionate voice and listening ear. Volunteers also needed to help take temperatures of people entering the building. The agency follows hospital protocols and provides volunteers with gloves, masks and a thermometer.

Meals on Wheels: Needs volunteers to help assemble and deliver meals to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities. Must be between the ages of 18-64. Learn more and register here.

Since 1970, Meals on Wheels volunteers have created and sent handwritten notes to their clients during their birthday month and other times during the year. If you are looking to volunteer from the safety and convenience of your home, Meals on Wheels has provided these easy instructions for creating meaningful cards. 

Roosevelt Middle School Food Pantry Pop-Up: Volunteer every Tuesday from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and help provide food to those in need. Location: blacktop on Palm Avenue. Learn more and register for a shift here.

SF-Marin Foodbank: Volunteer to help feed those in need. Current needs:
  • Pop-up Pantries: Help with food distribution at neighborhood pop-up pantries.

  • Home Delivered Groceries: Help deliver weekly groceries to those in need. Advance registration required.
  • The SF-Marin Food Bank needs financial support more than ever. Click here to learn more and to make a donation on the Congregation Emanu-El fundraising page.

Donate to Emanu-El’s Disaster Funds
 
  • Give to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, so our clergy can continue to carry out their mission of tikkun olam, to help those in need. The fund supports those facing dire circumstances and who require emergency assistance, both congregants and community organizations alike. In the last few weeks Emanu-El has used this fund to help people with food insecurity, housing support, books, and other expenses.
  • Consider donating to Emanu-El’s Relief Initiative, which will provide essential funds to keep our synagogue operating. We are conscientiously working to help support our staff — including our beloved teachers, maintenance crew, security staff, and others. Your contribution helps retain everyone who is so critical to our Emanu-El operations and programs, while also assisting our members with dues, tuition and scholarship relief.
  • Support our essential partner, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, to make an impact today. JFCS staff are first responders during this pandemic, on the front lines of this crisis affecting our whole community. If you are able, please give to the JFCS Community Emergency Fund to help the most vulnerable among us.

Shop the Shuk!

  • Help support our congregants with small businesses by purchasing from the Tikkun Emanu-El Shuk, an online virtual marketplace, to help our congregants with small businesses.
