The birth of a child is a welcome event in any community and a cause for celebration at the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue.

It is tradition that once your child is born, you may want to have a Brit Milah or naming ceremony for your son or daughter to welcome him or her into your family and the community.

The birth of a boy is celebrated with a Brit Milah, as it is known in Sephardic communities, (or more commonly known as a Bris).

The birth of a girl is celebrated with a naming ceremony. Rabbi Yehoshua Ellis is happy to discuss the service and everything that will take place beforehand to ensure that you and your daughter will be comfortable.

You may choose to have the service at your home, or at the synagogue, we are happy to accommodate you in either way. You can discuss this with our clergy.

To make arrangements for chapel and hall arrangements, please contact the booking manager at 514-737-3695, extension 115. To announce this happy occasion in our weekly bulletin, please call Linda Aboody at 514-737-3695, extension 109.
