Sharing a life cycle event is one of the greatest joys and sources of comfort that Peninsula Temple Sholom can offer. Our clergy would like to help you observe or celebrate your family’s life cycle events. Please contact our office by phone or email to make arrangements for baby namings, Brit Milah, weddings and B’nai Mitzvah. If there has been a death in your family, please call Rabbi Feder at (650) 697-2266.

If your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is more than two calendar years away, and you are a member of PTS, you will receive a letter describing your child’s responsibilities and the process of setting your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah date. When your child is in 5th Grade, you will be invited to a family workshop at the religious school. When your child is in 6th Grade, you will receive more details, including your child’s Torah portion. Please note that some life cycle services, such as performing a B’nai Mitzvah, are available only to PTS members.

Celebrate at PTS!
