Simchas

Brit Milah (Bris)
The birth of a son is a joyous event for a family to celebrate. A Brit Milah (circumcision) signifies the covenant between G-d and the Jews and is normally performed on the eighth day following the boy’s birth.

Central Shule is always delighted to welcome even the smallest new members to our community. Should you wish to use the shule to host your bris, please download the form below and return to the Central Shule Office.

Bar Mitzvah
