To schedule a baby naming at the synagogue, or a Brit Milah ceremony, please contact the Rabbi.
We celebrate the great blessing of a newborn daughter with a ceremony that brings her into the covenant, and confers upon her a Hebrew name. Rabbi Samuels can help you think through and design this ceremony, which can take place either at home, or at the synagogue, and on any day, including Shabbat.
The Torah commands us to circumcise our newborn sons on the eighth day of their new lives. This powerful ceremony celebrates new life, and also brings our sons into Judaism’s sacred covenant. Rabbi Samuels can put you in touch with a Mohel (ritual circumciser), help the parents understand the ceremony, and co-officiate, along with the Mohel.
