Traditions of a Jewish Baby Naming


Lifecycle events can feel like giant OMG moments, but we’re here to help! InterfaithFamily has partnered with G-dcast (you might remember their fantastic Torahlog video series, which we shared last year) to present their new series of Lifecycles videos, short animated videos and personal stories that give overviews of specific events and traditions.

Over the next year, we will be sharing these wonderful gems right here on this Lifecycles blog. (But if you’re impatient, you can check out the link above to their entire series on YouTube.) For starters, check out this video on Jewish Baby Naming! Some expectant parents spend literally years picking out baby names and others figure it out in an instant when they see their new child for the first time. Judaism has a lot to say about names and choosing the right one. Watch and discover!
