Welcoming Our Children into the World

Baby Naming:

Baby namings for girls usually occur within the first few months. We usually name babies at our Shabbat service (Friday or Saturday) or at a separate location.

Sometimes the babies and their parents are new to us; sometimes they are the children or grandchildren of our partners. All are welcome to call us and arrange a date for us to welcome your child into the Jewish community. You will meet with Rabbi Litwak to discuss how the ceremony will work for your family (and to help choose your child’s Hebrew name, if you’re not sure what it should be).

B’rit Milah (Bris):

Brit Milah, the covenant of circumcision, is celebrated on the eighth day for boys, and includes both the medical procedure of circumcision and Hebrew naming.  The medical procedure is done by a mohel who is specially trained.  The naming is done by Rabbi Litwak or one of our other clergy.

Your simcha can occur in the sanctuary, social hall or at another location. Please note that there is a separate fee for the services of the mohel. We have a list of mohels with whom we co-officiate, you can find a mohel by calling or emailing to our office.
