Mazel Tov! You just welcomed a new baby into your family. Judaism celebrates this occasion with a baby naming. We celebrate your child’s naming at a Shabbat service or at your home. Baby naming at Shabbat services allows for our community to welcome and celebrate new life as blessings are said during the time of the reading of the Torah.
For baby boys, a Brit Milah (circumcision) ceremony traditionally takes place on the eighth day after his birth. If the circumcision is performed in the hospital, a naming can be arranged to mark this significant rite of passage. Contact our rabbis.
