Lifecycle Events

Life-cycle events at Temple B’rith Shalom are often celebrated in the warmth of a small community that shares both the joyful and sad times with you. While each individual decides how they wish to mark the event, the temple is here to help you plan and mark the moment. Please contact Temple B'rith Shalom for further information.  

Brit Milah, the circumcision of a newborn male on the eighth day of his life. This powerful ceremony celebrates new life and also brings our sons into Judaism’s sacred covenant.

Baby Naming/Simchat Bat is a ceremony to bring a new daughter into the covenant and confer a Hebrew name. These ceremonies generally take place in the synagogue during Shabbat services or at a private location.

B’nai Mitzvah, traditionally a ceremony that occurs at age 13, increasingly adults who never became Bar/Bat Mitzvah, or who wish to celebrate their second bar mitzvah at age 83 (four score and 13), mark the ceremony in which they read from the Torah and commit to taking responsibility for the community.

Weddings: Temple B’rith Shalom welcomes couples who wish to be married in our congregation. 

Funerals: In 1999 Temple B’rith Shalom consecrated a Jewish cemetery located within Heritage Memorial Gardens. The Chevra Kadisha (Jewish Burial Society) of Northern Arizona is an independent, non-profit organization serving Jewish families across the region. 

Conversion: Temple B’rith Shalom welcomes “Jews by Choice” and encourages those who are curious about Judaism to attend Shabbat worship. Please contact us for more information. 

Contact Rabbi Susan for information on scheduling any of these life cycle events.
