baby naming
Ceremonies that celebrate the birth of a daughter and her entry into the covenant of the Jewish people are known by a variety of names, including b’rit bat and b’rit chayim. They are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our daughters and are an important part of liberal Judaism’s egalitarian approach to Jewish tradition. The TEE team is available to help you plan this ceremony. Arrangements may be made by contacting Laurie Zinberg, 908-858-6179.
