Baby Namings 

You are expecting a baby!  Mazel tov!

Here at Rodef Sholom, we see baby namings and britot (plural of bris, Jewish covenantal circumcision) as opportunities to create new Jewish paths for our growing families and can help connect you to blessings and resources for home or for congregational ceremonies.

We hope to join with you and all members of your family to help shape a Jewish ritual for your baby that will mark their entry into the world and our community with meaning and purpose. In the Reform Movement, we honor matrilineal or patrilineal descent. Because we realize that decisions about birth rituals can be complicated, we can connect you to a member of the clergy who can guide you in this process.

If you have questions, want to explore options, please contact Heidi Paul at (415) 479.3441 or
