We are fortunate as Jews to have so many traditions that provide meaning and spiritual beauty for the many stages and experiences we go through in our lifetime.Along with these traditions come numerous rituals and details that transform these experiences into a formal event. These are referred to as LIFE CYCLE EVENTS.
There are a variety of reasons for performing ritual in a particular way when celebrating a life cycle event, and we sometimes search for explanations to give us a better understanding of what needs to be done. To this end, our Ritual Committee has compiled a comprehensive explanation of each Life Cycle Event for our members' reference.
By clicking on the link to each specific Life Cycle Event listed below, you willl find complete explanations of each with advice on where to begin when approaching one of these events in our lives or when something has happened unexpectedly. Should you have further questions while planning for your specific life cycle event, please do not hesitate to contact Rabbi Emert or Cantor Mamber with any or concerns that may arise.
