Henry baby 2

When a baby is born, the whole congregation celebrates! A brit milah or bris (covenant of circumcsion for a boy) and a simchat bat (celebrating the joy of a daughter) are special ways for parents to express their gratitude and celebrate their new arrival with the community. If you are planning a bris, we are happy to recommend a local mohel (Jewish person trained in the procedure of circumcision). 

Every family in the Beth Emet community has the opportunity of introducing their new baby girl or boy to the congregation at a Kabbalat Shabbat service with a naming ceremony. To schedule a baby naming, please contact Wendy Yablon, assistant to the clergy.

Celebrate the new arrival with an Oneg Shabbat

Share your simcha (celebration) with the Congregation! Consider sponsoring a wine and cheese reception, flowers for the bimah, or  Shabbat Oneg at 5:45 p.m. prior to our 6:30 p.m. service To become a Shabbat Sponsor, please contact Bekki Harris Kaplan
