PROCEDURE FOR NAMING A DAUGHTER

Baby girls are named in synagogue on a day when the Torah is read: Shabbat morning, Shabbat afternoon, Monday or Thursday morning, or any Festival morning when the Torah is read. There is no time limit, but it is customarily done as soon as possible. Most parents wait until the mother is strong enough to be present so that she may participate in this beautiful ceremony and that she may hear the prayer, which is offered, for her speedy and complete recovery and that of her child.

You Rabbi should be consulted in arranging for this event. If you are presently unaffiliated with a synagogue please feel free to E-Mail me at the link provided below. You may also contact me by phone. I will try and help you to arrange this service with a Rabbi in your area.
