The birth of a child is a moment for celebration, both in your family and our community. It is the joy in the fulfilment of the promise of the next generation. As with many moments in our lives, we use a ritual to add meaning and context and celebration, to sanctify this great occasion.

This is a very special and personal experience and the entire staff at Emanuel Synagogue are here to ensure an uplifting journey for your family.

If you are expecting and would like to find out about a naming ceremony, a circumcision or have any other questions, you can contact us on (02) 9389 6444 or and we will direct you to the right person.


We also have a special group for expecting couples, regardless of whether this is your first, second or more child. Join Rabbi Kaiserblueth for a series of informal sessions designed as preparation for birth in a Jewish context. This is also a wonderful opportunity to meet others about to welcome a new bundle of joy. Sessions are held every month in a private home. Please call the office on 9389 6444 for details.
