Aufruf

An aufruf is a short ceremony, usually held on Friday Nights at Beth Tikvah Congregation as part of our Shabbat Service, where a couple, who is about to be married, is called forward and blessed and celebrated by the clergy and congregation. Such joyous occasions often involve giving the couple an aliyah, the chance to make a blessing before and after the reading of the Torah, if they choose to do so. On occasion, once a couple is blessed by our clergy soft candy is gently tossed toward the couple by friends and family as the congregation sings "siman tov u-mazal tov,” a song wishing the couple good luck. The Aurfruf ceremony is open to couples where both partners are Jewish as well as to interfaith couples-whether or not a Beth Tikvah Congregation clergy member will be officiating at the actual wedding ceremony.

If you are interested in holding your wedding ceremony and/or reception at Beth Tikvah Congregation, or would like to have an aufruf ceremony before your wedding, please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Life Cycle Events

A familiar text from the book of Ecclesiastics reminds us that “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” At Beth Tikvah Congregation, our caring and dedicated clergy look forward to helping you and your family mark, celebrate, and feel the sanctity of your simchas (joyous moments in life) and they are committed to helping you cope and respond in challenging times. Likewise, your friends and fellow congregants of Beth Tikvah Congregation cannot wait to rejoice with you in happy times and want to be there for you in times of trouble.

If you know you will soon experience a happy event (such as the birth of a child, a Bar Mitzvah, wedding or wedding anniversary), or if you are currently facing a hardship in life such as a loss, illness, loss of job or any other sorrow or disappointment, please email Beth Tikvah, or call 847-885-4545, so that we can have one of our clergy connect with you.
