New Baby blessings for the New Year!

Were you blessed with a new baby (babies!) in your family during the past year?  Did you add a new grandchild or a niece/nephew or two?  We want to share in your simcha! (joy)  We will celebrate the miracle of birth on the Birthday of the World, Rosh HaShanah, this year at the beginning of the Torah service on the first day of Rosh HaShanah in the Sanctuary and in the Social Hall (approximately 10:15 a.m.).  We invite you to bring the baby up to the bima in person (if child/ren not available a picture will do nicely) for a special blessing.  Mazel Tov!
