The Torah commands us to circumcise our newborn sons on the eight day of their new lives. This powerful ceremony celebrates new life, and also brings our sons into Judaism’s sacred covenant. Rabbi Fellman can put you in touch with a Mohel (ritual circumciser),help the parents understand the ceremony, and officiate, along with the Mohel.

 

Baby Naming/Simchat Bat

We celebrate the great blessing of a newborn daughter with a ceremony that brings her into the covenant, and confers upon her a Hebrew name.  Rabbi Fellman can help you think through and design this ceremony, which can take place either at home, or at the synagogue.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Bar/Bat Mitzvah students are moving from childhood to adulthood, from learning to be responsible to being responsible. As son or daughter of the commandments, you commit yourself to be proud membership in our ancient people. 

Wedding

Rabbi Fellman can help you prepare for this wonderful, joyous occasion, by teaching bride and groom the meaning of the ceremony, from Ketubah (marriage document), to Kiddushin (Engagement) to Huppah (Marriage Canopy) to Nissuin (marriage ceremony) to breaking the glass.  He will counsel you, offering Jewish wisdom in preparation for a life dedicated to love and companionship.  He will also work with you in designing the ceremony, providing knowledge and experience.

Funeral

Our tradition offers several powerful end of life rituals – Kriah (tearing of a garment), Levayah (funeral procession), Hesped (eulogy), Kevurah (burial) and Shivah (seven days of mourning). Rabbi Fellman will instruct you on these and other rituals.  He can also perform the funeral ceremony, and help you understand and implement other meaningful Jewish mourning practices.
