Yom Sheini, 24 Shevat 5777

When a new child is born into our community, she or he receives two names. One is the name that appears on the birth certificate. The second is a spiritual name that is given in a Jewish naming ceremony. If a girl is born or if a boy has a circumcision without a "brit milah" or "bris" ceremony, a family may elect to have a Jewish naming ceremony to which friends and family are often invited.

This is the only life cycle event that our synagogue performs for members and nonmembers alike. We will be happy to assist you in selecting a Hebrew/Jewish name for your child and can  perform the ceremony at either our synagogue or your home. Give us a call so that we can wish you congratulations and a hearty Mazal Tov!

Purim is a holiday for laughter, costumes, noisemakers and giving treats. Mishloach Manot is the Purim Mitzvah of sending small gifts, usually of food, to friends, neighbors and the community.

Surprise your friends and family with Mishloach Manot gift bags. Each decorated package contains an assortment of Kosher candy and snacks, hamentaschen, and a grogger. Please also consider donating Mishloach Manot to the United Hebrew or Sarah Neuman Nursing Home.
