Traditional Jewish rituals accompanying important life cycle events bring joy and comfort to the individuals involved. They also bring the community together in celebration and support. These life cycle rituals are probably among the most important functions that a synagogue can perform. In this section, we present the major life cycle services or rituals that the Leo Baeck Centre offers to its members.
The Leo Baeck Centre and its members also mark other milestones in their lives, such as a special birthday or wedding anniversary, within the community. Some members enjoy being honoured in a Shabbat morning service or may wish to sponsor a Kiddush for the whole community. Others may mark a significant event by making a donation to the Centre either for general use or to help us acquire something from our community wish list.
