Temple Adat Shalom held a naming ceremony in the sukkah for the kindergarten Sunday school class. It was beautiful and as usual my favorite part was the blessing of the children. They were sheltered under a tallit held by all the parents.

Jane’s Hebrew name is Nesya which is so unusual (perhaps even made-uppedly so) that she’ll probably never meet another. The biblical name trend was evident from the 80% of the class whose English and Hebrew names are the same — and not just the obvious Leahs, Rachels, and Davids, but two Elijahs.
