Welcome to Congregation Shaarey Zedek
Mazel Tov to Rivka and Rabbi Galperin
On Thursday, the Jewish community celebrated the bris of Rivka and the Rabbi's son. During the ceremony, the name of the baby, Menachem Mendel was announced. Mazel Tov to the Galperin family.
The Galperin Baby Bris
Rabbi Galperin and wife Rivka would like to inform the community that the bris for their new son will be held on Thursday, January 8th at 4:30pm. The ceremony, which is open to the public, will be held at the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue, located at 115 Giles Blvd. East. A community dinner will follow.
New Baby Galperin
Last Friday, as we met for shabbat services, I joked that the Rabbi's son might end up being the first-born of 2015. The Rabbi couldn't imagine his wife holding on for that long - considering she was already overdue.
Well, it's too bad I didn't make a bet. On Thursday, the baby was finally born - and was the first of 2015.
