LISA BRAVER MOSS, "Celebrating Brit Shalom"


May 21, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Please join us as we welcome back local writer Lisa Braver Moss on Thursday May 21st at 7pm. She'll be discussing her new book "Celebrating Brit Shalom".

"Celebrating Brit Shalom" is the first ever book for Jewish families opting out of circumcision, and for the rabbis wishing to meet their ceremonial needs.

It's a how-to, a prayerbook—and a keepsake, ready to be inscribed.  
Highlights include:
  • 3 original ceremonies from which to choose
  • 4 specially composed songs available separately; sheet music included in book
  • tips and advice for holding a Brit Shalom service
