Bris / Baby Namings

Baby namings

It is a great joy for our community to share in the celebration of welcoming a new baby into our midst! We encourage families to hold baby namings as part of our Friday evening Shabbat Services. Our clergy are also available to welcome your baby into the Jewish community at a private gathering in your home. Please call us in the office at 203-866-0148, to speak to Rabbi Lipson, Cantor Sklar, or Rabbi Greenberg directly.

This eclectic style serves to elevate worship to its highest level and uplifts the spirit through a unique musical experience.
