Jewish Lifecycle

 

Baby Naming / Bris Circumcision Ceremony

There are few joys that are greater than, as a parent, welcoming a new child into the world. The bris (for boys) and naming ceremony (for girls) gives families, friends and the entire community the opportunity to celebrate the new life. It is also an important event in marking the entrance into covenant with God and the Jewish people. Chabad of the Bahamas delights in the birth of each baby in the greater Jewish community. We will facilitate, arrange, assist and familiarize the family with the entire process to make it the experience and the joy it is meant to be.

 

Bar & Bat Mitzvah Celebrations

 “Son or daughter of the commandment,” Bar/Bat mitzvah is the process of being recognized as an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community. At the age of thirteen for a boy and twelfth for a girl young people become responsible for the mitzvot. Bar/Bat mitzvah preparation focuses on synagogue skills, Jewish Holidays, and What it means to be a proud Jew in todays society. These fundamentals are essential for a child to fully participate in adult Jewish life. Contact the Rabbi to start planning the dream celebration.
