Simcha Series

Congregation Shaare Emeth’s Simcha Series

Introducing our new Simcha Series! Each class is an opportunity to GROW, CELEBRATE, and CONNECT with others experiencing similar milestones!

Our First Class: 

B’Sha’Ah Tovah*: A Class for Expecting Parents

Sundays: January 9th, February 27th, March 20th
2-3:30 p.m. 

We know that each path to parenthood is unique and personal. Whether you are single or partnered; whether you anticipate the arrival of your child through pregnancy, adoption, surrogacy, or another path; whether or not you and your partner are both Jewish; whether you are already a parent or this will be your first child, you are invited to join us for B’sha’ah Tovah: A Class for Expecting Parents.  

B’sha’ah Tovah will provide you with opportunities to connect with other expecting parents and to explore both traditional and contemporary ways that Judaism can add meaning to every stage of your journey to parenthood – from anticipating, to welcoming, to celebrating.  

B’sha’ah Tovah is open to Shaare Emeth members and to the broader community. Please feel free to share information about this class with friends and family members who are expecting parents. 

Questions? Contact Rabbi Rachel Bearman at [email protected].  

Ready to RSVP? Email Stacy Jespersen at [email protected] today! 

*Did you know: The traditional, Jewish response to learning that someone is expecting a child is “B’sha’ah Tovah” which literally means “at a good hour” but is understood to mean “may everything go well and happen at the right time.”*
