Life-cycle events are important parts of Judaism. B’nai Portland and Rabbi Laura are honored to guide, celebrate and support people through these significant milestones in their lives. B’nai Portland has a liberal stance towards the inclusion of non-Jewish members of our families in lifecycle events. LGBTQ members are welcome members of our congregation. Rabbi Laura will officiate for LGBTQ simchas as she does for all others. Working together, Rabbi Laura and our community will strive to ensure that each family is guided through a meaningful engagement with traditional Jewish approaches to these events.
