Publicity Information

 

Note: You may list the names of step-parents if you wish.  If you are divorced and do so, please make certain that your former spouse is in agreement with this format.  If the two parents cannot agree on how this information should be published, Beth El will only print the full English and Hebrew names of the child.

Please indicate how you would like the English names of the parent(s) to be listed. This information will follow the words “son of …” or “daughter of …”

Please indicate the names of those family members who are sponsoring the Kiddush and/or Congregational Shabbat Lunch.  You may list names or use the phrase “sponsored by his/her family or grandparents/aunts/uncles etc.”  On any given Shabbat, there may also be other Beth El families who wish to sponsor the Kiddush in honor of a simhah in their family.  The names of additional sponsors will follow the information that you indicate below when the Hakol is printed.  Co-sponsorship information will also appear in the Shofar if we receive notification prior to our publication deadlines.

 

Honors

At Beth El, we provide for each bar/bat mitzvah family to receive three aliyot in addition to the bar/bat mitzvah (two aliyot for Monday/Thursday/Shabbat Minhah and Rosh Hodesh).  Dressing the Torah and opening/closing the ark are also available honors for assignment by b’nai mitzvah families.

For family members of a different faith background, there are a number opportunities to include and honor them during services: presenting a tallit at Friday night services, sharing Kiddush on the bimah on Shabbat mornings and accompanying the Torah as it is removed from the ark.  Contact our Ritual Coordinator for additional information or one of our rabbis to help clarify any question you may have.

Note: Our Ritual Coordinator will inform you which aliyot your honorees will be receiving.
