Births

Whether you have become a parent, or you are supporting as a grandparent the arrival of a grandchild, our Shul and Rabbinic Team would be delighted to make this occasion extra special.

Baby Girls

Choosing and naming a baby girl is a beautiful and meaningful opportunity.

The process for giving a Hebrew name can take place in Shul, often followed by a reception, typically during a service in which the Torah is read (Shabbat, Yom tov, Monday and Thursday) or at home in a Simchat bat ceremony.

Please be in touch with Rabbi Elchonon or Rabbi Lister for help in choosing a Hebrew name and/or for marking this special occasion. For a hall hire please email our events team.

Baby Boys

The naming of a baby boy takes place during their Brit Milah (circumcision). Assuming there are no complications, this takes place on the eighth day after birth.

This can take place either in shul, often followed by a reception, or at a location to suit your family.

If you would like to book the shul for your son’s Brit Milah, please contact the Shul office.

If you need help choosing a Hebrew name please contact Rabbi Elchonon or Rabbi Lister or for help marking this special occasion. For a hall hire please email our events team.
