Religious Organization temple photo

Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco, California, celebrated its 150th anniversary with a large scale oral history project. The archive includes numerous recorded and print oral histories of longtime staff, clergy, and congregants.


Religious and faith-based organizations often have rich histories and inspiring stories of serving their communities. Life History Services has helped congregations, churches, and temples across the country plan and produce archives that tell the story of their founding, spiritual direction, staff, membership, programs, and impact on their world. We would be delighted to speak with you about creating and preserving your legacy.
