Simchas

Birth

Members of the congregation that are celebrating the birth of a child or a grandchild are encouraged to share this simcha (joyous event) with the congregation. We would love to honor you with a special aliyah during our Torah service, and hold a very special naming ceremony for your newest family member.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah - B'nai Mitzvah Handbook

Celebrating a child becoming an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community is a momentous and joyous occasion and is a milestone that you and your family will cherish and remember for many years. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony is meant to be a formal and public recognition of a young person’s willingness to accept and embrace the privileges, obligations, and responsibilities associated with living a full and meaningful Jewish life.

Wedding

Ohev Shalom is a wonderful place to celebrate a Jewish wedding! On the weekend before the big day, we would be honored to welcome the couple, along with the entire family, to celebrate at our Saturday morning services. This tradition is known as the Aufruf, and is an opportunity to give the couple an aliyah(honor) in front of the Torah. This is a wonderful way to connect your simcha to the wider community, and to our religious services, and our entire congregation will be thrilled to celebrate together with your family.
