We will hold a special Consecration Ceremony on Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. as part of Family Worship for our Kindergarten – 2nd Grade students who are beginning their formal religious education in our ARJE Accredited Weiner Religious School.
We hope this is the beginning of a journey for these children that will be marked along the way by B’nai Mitzvah, Confirmation and the life-long pursuit of Jewish study. We have created some unique rituals to make this a memorable occasion as we pass the heritage of our people onto the next generation. Parents will gather their children in front of our Heritage Torah under a “chuppa’ created by all of our Pre-K thru 6th grade classes in as Rabbi Cattapan speaks to them about the importance of Torah. During the service the Confirmation Class of 5777 will wrap the Consecration families in the Torah as we all recite the Shema. The entire congregation is invited to attend and be part of this ceremony as we welcome these little ones. We are grateful to the Beth Torah Gift Shop for providing a tzedakah box as a gift for each of the students and for sponsoring the celebration for the families following the ceremony.
