Our commitment to building community based on the uniqueness of each family allows us to create lifecycle rituals based in tradition that speak to the individuality of our congregants.
B’nei Mitzvah ceremonies welcome the next generation into the congregation as full members of the Jewish community. While all congregants are welcome at any ceremony, typically family and friends make up the congregation during b’nei mitzvah ceremonies. With warmth, tradition, humor, and spirit, these services reflect all that is best about our congregants and their families. We invite you to contact Rabbi Goldsmith to learn more about our b’nei mitzvah program.
Baby naming and bris ceremonies welcome new children into the covenant of Israel. From simple ceremonies in front of the Ark during Friday night services to elaborate, private ceremonies involving friends and relatives, they help to mark the miracle of birth. We happily perform baby naming and bris ceremonies for non-congregants.
Wedding ceremonies at the congregation or in the many beautiful venues in the area honor the commitment of two loving people while celebrating a new home within the Jewish community. Our clergy work with the wedding couple to craft a ceremony that is personal and rooted in tradition.
Funeral services provide families with a sacred space to honor their loved ones and express their grief. In the sanctuary, at a funeral home, or graveside, our compassionate clergy are there for our congregants in these difficult times.
Conversion is a very personal decision and our clergy are here to help those considering this step. From an initial conversation through study, spiritual guidance, and involvement in congregational life, we help conversion students explore Judaism in a non-pressured, judgement-free environment.
