Birth

Bris / Jewish Naming: The Jewish name is a keystone of Jewish identity for all Jews. It is customary to give a Jewish name when the baby is born. Jewish boys are named during the ritual circumcision (brit milah), and Jewish girls are named at the first synagogue Torah reading following their birth.

We can help you arrange the ceremony, and walk you through the all the details.

Bar / Bat Mitzva 

Our young teens prepare for this milestone through a combination of Hebrew classes, tutoring and consultation with the Rabbi. The ceremony can be held at Chabad or at a venue of your choice. We will meet with you to craft a ceremony that meets your needs.
As is our policy there is NO MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED for Chabad to assist with Bnei Mitzva needs 

Weddings

In preparation for the joyous occasion, the bride and groom will meet with the rabbi to learn about the Jewish perspective of weddings and marriage. Our Rabbis can perform the ceremony, walking your guests through the rich meanings behind the rituals.

Bereavement

The Rabbi and staff are always here, especially in times of need. To offer comfort, guidance and bereavement support, assistance in preparation, officiating at the funeral, the Shiva service etc. Contact us here.

We can arrange for kaddish as well as minyan services for those who are observing a yahrtzeit.
