Naming Cermonies

Simchat Bat & Brit Milah

For the joyous occasion of a baby's birth, rabbi presides over the baby naming ceremony – Simchat Bat (for girls). He guides parents through the significance of these rites, offering blessings and prayers for the new baby.

For the blessing of a newborn baby boy, Rabbi can direct you to a mohel who will perform a Brit Milah (circumcision in the Jewish custom) at 8 days old, per Jewish custom.

B'nei Mitzvah

Our individualized B'nei Mitzvah classes are designed to guide and support families as they prepare for the celebration of their child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah. From learning Torah portions to understanding the significance of the mitzvot, we ensure that your child is well-prepared for this momentus occasion.
