Rabbi Russo will work with your family to create customized life cycle commemorations for your family. She will create a Simchat Bat Brit (Baby Naming ceremony) and help you navigate brit milah ceremonies; she will co-officiate on request as well. Hazzan Kasper works in coordination with Rabbi Russo on personalized and meaningful B’nei Mitzvah (Bar and Bat Mitzvah) ceremonies. We have celebrated all couples who want an aufruf or a blessing before marriage at the synagogue. Rabbi Russo works with couples to create thoughtful wedding ceremonies. She also works with people interested in conversion. Walking with families during times of loss and suffering is extremely important to our rabbi and community. We come together during times of sorrow.
Sometimes we benefit from rituals that have not been traditionally recognized. Our clergy will work with you to create rituals that bring meaning to poignant moments in life. Examples of these rituals include: retirement, divorce, fertility struggles and miscarriage, moving, etc.
