Celebrating the birth of our daughter in June 2020 with a small, outdoor, masked and distanced simchat
bat. The program included a Zeved Habat ceremony adapted from the Koren siddur text and remarks

friends. It followed a short morning service inside the synagogue where the baby received her Hebrew
name, Aviya Dova, after Torah reading in the presence of family members.
Individuals present were Bonnie Libman-Lazar, Ella Libman-Lazar, Gerald Lazar, Rachel Libman; Rabbi Chaim Strauchler; Jonah & Leila Libman, Faigie Libman, Jeff Lazar; Rachel Sheps & Avi Libman; and Rabbi Jesse Shore.
