Brit Milah

The Torah commands us to circumcise our newborn sons on the eight day of their new lives. This powerful ceremony celebrates new life and brings our sons into Judaism’s sacred covenant. Rabbi Sarah Mack can put you in touch with a Mohel (ritual circumciser), help you understand the ceremony, and co-officiate, along with the Mohel.


Baby Naming/Simchat Bat

We celebrate the great blessing of a newborn daughter with a ceremony that brings her into the covenant and confers upon her a Hebrew name.  Rabbi Sarah Mack can help you design this ceremony.


B Mitzvah

B Mitzvah students are moving from childhood to adulthood. B Mitzvahs commit themselves to be proud members of our ancient people. 


Wedding

Rabbi Sarah Mack can help you prepare for this wonderful, joyous occasion, by teaching bride and groom the meaning of the ceremony, from Ketubah (marriage document), to Kiddushin (Engagement) to Huppah (Marriage Canopy) to Nissuin (marriage ceremony) to breaking the glass.  We also counsel you, offering Jewish wisdom in preparation for a life dedicated to love and companionship.  We work with you in designing the ceremony, providing our knowledge and experience.


Funeral

Our tradition offers several powerful end of life rituals – Kriah (tearing of a garment), Levayah (funeral procession), Hesped (eulogy), Kevurah (burial) and Shivah (seven days of mourning). Rabbi Sarah Mack will instruct you on these and other rituals. We can also perform the funeral ceremony, and help you understand and implement other meaningful Jewish mourning practices.
