Weddings

Reconstructionist weddings incorporate elements of traditional Jewish wedding ceremonies along with elements that are meaningful and relevant in contemporary life.  As a congregation, we cherish open and egalitarian values. We encourage couples to create their own meaningful traditions while enjoying the enrichment of their Jewish heritage. 

Members of B’nai Havurah receive our rabbi's services as an officiant without charge as part of their membership.  We welcome non-member couples to meet with our Rabbi to discuss officiating at their wedding. Non-members are requested to provide an honorarium for her services. 

As Reconstructionists, and in keeping with our values of inclusivity and egalitarianism, B’nai Havurah welcomes interfaith and same-sex couples as members of our community.  Our rabbi will officiate your Jewish wedding. The couple must intend to have a Jewish home and raise Jewish children, should they be blessed.

For additional information about weddings, contact Becky Epstein at exec@bnaihavurah.org.

 

Brit Milah / Baby Naming

Bringing your child into the Jewish community through Brit Milah or a baby naming ceremony is an exciting event for everyone. Our rabbi can support all members with these and other life cycle events. Our rabbi, our musicians and other ritual leaders are also available to the greater Jewish community for an honorarium. Please contact the office for more information.

Bereavement

The Chesed Committee at B’nai Havurah is one of our most active committees.  Together with our Rabbi, members of Chesed are poised to alert the B’nai Havurah community to recent passings and to provide care and comfort to the grieving family and friends. The committee is also available to assist our rabbi and the family with funeral arrangements and facilitate shiva plans. 

The rabbi is available to support bereaved families in the greater Jewish community as well. 

If you would like support following the recent loss of a loved one, please contact us at  office@bnaihavurah.org / 303-388-4441 and we will put you in touch with a member of our Chesed Committee.
