Life Cycle

Life cycle events, both good and bad, are enriched by the love, support and spiritual guidance of your synagogue family. At Ahavath Achim, our clergy and our congregation are here to share your joy or your sorrow, and to assist you with the milestone events in your life

 

Births


The birth of a baby is a blessing to all. At AA, we are excited to help you welcome your new new baby and be a part of your child’s simcha.

Baby Namings and Bris:

Contact Jill Rosner, 404.603.5741 or jrosner@aasynagogue.org, to schedule the date, time, and officiant. When you have a final schedule, contact Jill to help you coordinate your celebration at Ahavath Achim Synagogue. Our facilities are available to host formal or informal events, large or small.

Expecting?  Join us for Bet Is For Baby, our Jewish parenting course for first-time expectant parents who are about to embark on the greatest adventure of their lifetimes – parenthood.

Bet Is For Baby

Bar/Bat Mitzvah


Bar / Bat Mitzvah literally means Son / Daughter of the Commandment. It is a joyous coming of age in which we welcome young men and women as full-fledged members of the Jewish community.

At Ahavath Achim, we strive to ensure that each child and each family experiences the positive significance of this special milestone ritual by preparing and encouraging each child, and assisting and supporting each family.

To schedule a Bar / Bat Mitzvah contact Jill Rosner at 404.603.5741 or jrosner@aasynagogue.org

Marriage


At Ahavath Achim, we can help you make your wedding the once-in-a-lifetime simcha it should be. You can choose to schedule some or all your wedding events here – engagement parties, showers, Aufruf, rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception.

To make clergy arrangements or for more information about our facilities and capabilities, contact Jill Rosner at 404.603.5741 or jrosner@aasynagogue.org.

Divorce/Get


Divorce is a difficult process for all. Judaism recognizes that despite the best intentions, marriages sometimes fail. At AA, we can provide a religious and spiritual context for divorce to help couples overcome the pain and guilt they may experience. Our rabbis will be happy to counsel you during this difficult time.

Though we recognize civil divorce as the legal dissolution of a marriage, some Jews also desire a Get (Jewish bill of divorce) to provide spiritual and psychological closure.

If you need counseling or are interested in obtaining a Get, please contact Jill Rosner, 404.603.5741 or jrosner@aasynagogue.org, to schedule time with a rabbi.

Misheberach


We encourage prayers for those who are ill. If you would like the name of an ill loved one added to or removed from our Misheberach prayer list, please contact Fern Schorr at 404.355.5222 orfschorr@aasynagogue.org.

Bereavement


May the Lord comfort and sustain all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

During the difficult time of sorrow and pain leading up to and following the death of a loved one, the Ahavath Achim family is available to provide support and guidance, and to assist with the practical details and necessities.

Please call the synagogue at 404.355.5222 so that we can provide you with the information and guidance you need – rabbinic and spiritual support, chevre kadisha services, funeral scheduling and burial planning.

After hours, you may contact one of the Rabbis directly.
