Lifecycle Events

As your B’nai Tikvah extended family, we would like to share in your life cycle events.  Celebrating and acknowledging the lifecycle events is one of the most important and gratifying aspects of our synagogue.

Weddings and Auf Rufs

The Congregation looks forward to celebrating wedding ceremonies in our beautiful sanctuary and social halls. We also enjoy sharing the Aufruf with the families of the bride and groom on a Shabbat morning before the wedding.

Brit Milah, Simchat Bat and Other Life Cycle Celebrations

Brit Milah, ritual circumcision, may be held and celebrated in the Synagogue. Simchat Bat, baby namings, are integrated into our Shabbat morning services. We also welcome members to celebrate other special life cycle events, anniversaries and birthdays at the Synagogue.


Facilities at B’nai Tikvah are available to all members of the Jewish community for life cycle celebrations.


At B’nai Tikvah, we are a family, and families are together in times of joy and in times of grief.  As such, B’nai Tikvah provides funeral services for all members and encourages our families to use the synagogue’s section at Shalom Memorial Park.
