Baby Naming and Brit Milah

Our rabbis and cantor are available to officiate with a mohel/mohelet in the Brit Milah ceremony.

Naming and blessing a Jewish baby or child is his or her first welcome into Jewish life. The naming takes place within the congregation community at Shabbat services. For Temple members, arrangements can also be made for the ceremony to be performed at the family's home. For more information, please contact us: 415-751-2535.
