Welcoming a Newborn

Mazel tov!  We are thrilled that you are expecting a baby and will raise your child in our community as a new member of the Jewish people.  Beth Jacob is a community that loves babies and children, and they are a critical part of the life of the congregation.  These sections will answer many of your questions about the rituals that we use to welcome a new baby.  Please feel free to contact Rabbi Allen with questions or concerns.
