In the Jewish tradition, the proper greeting for the news that a baby is on the way is b’sha’ah tovah – a prayer that a healthy child be born at the proper time. The congregation shares in the joy, and the clergy is eager to support and assist in any way needed.

Please contact one of our clergy team to help with the selection of a Hebrew name, for help and information in planning a baby naming or brit milah, and to determine if a pidyon haben (redemption of the first-born son) ceremony is necessary.

To schedule a baby naming at the Torah during Shabbat services, contact Ritual Director Saul Rube.
