Birth

Every person born into this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique. It is therefore the duty of every person to know and consider his/her uniqueness. In Judaism, that uniqueness is represented through his/her Hebrew name, a symbol that links the child to generations past and future. 

At Hakafa, Rabbi Elder, in conjunction with the parents, designs and conducts baby naming ceremonies for both baby boys and girls.
