Sunday 29th January saw our 7th Annual Baby Blessing Ceremony taking place at Borehamwood and Elstree Synagogue.

Both Rabbi Alan Plancey, our Emeritus Rabbi, and Rabbi Chaim Kanterovitz, our Senior Rabbi, delighted in blessing no less than 32 gorgeous babies.

Each baby was presented with a handwritten certificate, which contained both their Hebrew and English names as well as cute pink bunnies for the girls and cheeky lions for the boys. The ceremony was accompanied by beautiful music provided by Ariel Shapiro and Dror Wayne who played the keyboard. It was followed by a delicious brunch and the opportunity to have family photo sessions with our resident Photographer, Maurice Isaac.

Thanks must also go to Tania Falk, Jessica Green and Estelle Talberg who co-ordinated the ceremony.  It was a privilege to be part of such a vibrant community activity and know that these babies are our blessing for the future.
