What if I want to celebrate a family simcha at the Library Minyan?

We are happy to celebrate life cycle events with our members. Each month we provide an opportunity for multiple members to cosponsor kiddush in honor of a birthday, anniversary, yahrzeit, or other event. Members are also welcome to lead a part of the service or read Torah or Haftarah on the anniversary of a bar or bat mitzvah. For larger life cycle events including bar/bat mitzvah, aufruf, or baby naming, we work with families to enable participation in the services by family and friends (read our online simcha guidelines or talk with our simcha coordinator). These events are most rewording if the family has been participating with Library Minyan for some time and is familiar with our practices. A Bar/bat mitzvah needs to be planned well in advance with TBA staff. Contact the Rosh, the head gabbai, or the simcha coordinator for more information.
