He’s getting ready for bar mitzvah lessons and absolutely refuses to go by the Yiddish name of your great-grandfather?

No worries! Whether you are looking for a small, private ceremony or a larger celebration with family and friends, we can make it work for you! A special certificate appropriate for any child at any age is Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services’ gift to you.

Brit Milah

Welcoming our Sons into the Covenant of Circumcision

This is undeniably one of the most powerful rituals of Judaism. Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services is available to help you understand this ancient ceremony, help you customize and personalize it to meet your needs, and officiate at the ceremony.

There are a large number of mohalim (ritual circumcision experts) to provide the technical services necessary for this ancient rite. Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services can help you with the selection process to ensure that an appropriate expert is engaged. While they focus on taking care of your son, Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services will focus on taking care of your needs for a beautiful and engaging ceremony.

Brit Shalom

Naming Ceremonies for Boys

A growing number of families are seeking a naming ceremony for their sons that does not feature circumcision. Often (but not necessarily) referred to as a Brit Shalom (Covenant of Peace), these ceremonies are completely customizable for a family’s particular needs and sensitivities. You can opt for a celebration that closely parallels a traditional brit milah ceremony; you can opt for a celebration that has little resemblance to a traditional brit milah ceremony. At the end of the day, the ceremony crafted for your needs will be a beautiful welcoming of your son in a way that reflects your Jewish values and preferences.

Simhat Bat

Celebrating Our Daughters

There are nearly infinite options available for your daughter’s naming ceremony. Some prefer creative expressions of female identity. Some families prefer to model the ceremony after the naming of a son. Some families have important items of Judaica they want as part of the service. There is no one “right” or “wrong” way. There are ways that can express your family’s values and identity that are meaningful for your family. Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services can help you sort through those options, and create a ceremony that will celebrate your daughter on your terms, with your values, and reflecting your personal style.


Making Families through Loving Choice

Sometimes our littlest blessings in our lives come to us with the assistance of other mothers and fathers. Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services is happy to help you formalize your new children–of all ages–in her or his Jewish identity (if necessary) and help you welcome this new love to your family.

Pidyon Ha-Ben

Redemption of the First-Born Son

This relatively obscure and rarely-held Pidyon Ha-Ben ceremony is simplified for you when you call upon Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services.

The Bible commands parents to redeem their first-born sons with silver weighing “5 shekels according to the Sanctuary Shekel Weight”. But what does this actually mean for contemporary times? Parents often have questions. “What if there was a prior miscarriage?” “What happens if he’s the first son, but a second child?” “What about our adopted child?” “What exactly is the silver I need to use?” Let Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services help you determine if the Pidyon Ha-Ben ceremony is for you. From negotiating the traditional requirements for the ceremony, to working out the details and helping arrange the ritual occasion, Jewtique Concierge Rabbinic Services is here for you to make sure that this is a memorable experience for your family.

From the moment we met Rabbi Greenspoon there was a warmth and familiarity that made him feel like family. To that end, Rabbi Greenspoon helped our family celebrate the bris of our first-born son and subsequently our daughter’s baby naming. At both momentous life events Rabbi Greenspoon helped make the ceremonies personal and meaningful to us as new parents and a growing Jewish family. Before both events the Rabbi took the time and care to not only explain the rituals but also allowed us the space to personalize the experiences based on our preferences. We will never forget these important milestones which were made even more special by Rabbi Greenspoon’s guidance, kindness, and grace.
