Lifecycle Event Celebrations and Ceremonies at Temple Sholom.
As a privilege of membership, Members may call on the Rabbis and Cantor to officiate and/or use the Temple facilities in observance of life cycle events.
Planning your wedding is a sacred opportunity for our Clergy to develop a relationship with you that culminates in your unique ceremony. The process includes counseling on rituals and other topics tailored to your goals as a couple.
Baby Naming & Brit Milah
Announcing the birth of a child to the community is a sacred and important milestone for a Jewish family. Baby Naming and Brit Milah (ritual circumcision) ceremonies are offered by Temple Sholom and performed by adept community members. Growing up Jewish means the community is there for you every step of the way. Mazel tov on your new arrival!
We celebrate this rite of passage in a congregational setting on Shabbat mornings. In addition to classroom work, students meet with their Rabbinic Mentor over the course of a year, as well as individual tutoring sessions. This long term preparation forges bonds and enables thoughtful and mature approaches to the entire experience.
Conversion focused programming includes Adult Education classes and other learning opportunities, special Services, meetings with clergy, and lifecycle based events.
If you experience the loss of a loved one, our compassionate Clergy will support, counsel and comfort your family during a time of grief and difficult decision making. It is our sacred obligation to bring dignified and meaningful closure to those in mourning, remembering those of blessed memory.
