Welcoming A Child or Grandchild

Baby Naming and Brit Milah

Can anything match the joy and wonder of the birth of a child? Our congregation invites you to mark this special moment in your lives with us.

The Rabbi is known for his creative and engaging baby naming services. There are multiple options. A short baby naming ceremony can be performed during a Friday night or Saturday morning service. There is no fee to anyone in the community for a service taking place in the synagogue. Parents and the child come to the bimah, the child receives his or her Hebrew name in a personalized ceremony, and the entire family receives a blessing.

Another option is to have the Rabbi officiate in your home providing a creative ceremony crafted with parents. There can be parts in the service for grandparents, siblings, and other family members. Each service is individually created with parents inserting personalized readings, as well as music. Our Rabbi is an ordained cantor as well as an ordained Rabbi (one of a limited number worldwide) and as such provides a festive musical element for your ceremony.

While the Rabbi is not trained to perform circumcision, he is happy to refer inquiries to a trained mohel for a Brit Milah.
