Shabbat Morning Service Honors

We are excited to celebrate with your family and honor your loved ones by including them in parts of the service. Please provide first and last names, and the relationship (to B'nai Mitzvah) of all honorees.

Torah Service Aliyot

Please keep in mind the following when giving out Torah aliyot:

  • The Torah honors may be give out to Jewish individuals who are above the age of 13.
  • We welcome younger children to come and stand with their parents.
  • We are honored to have Rodef Shalom parents who are interfaith to come and stand together for an aliyah should they wish to do so.
  • There may be a maximum of four (4) individuals called up per aliyah.
  • Please provide Hebrew names in a transliterated format per instructions in the Hebrew Names section.
  • If you wish to have one of your guests read from the Torah, they must be approved by Rabbi Kobrin no later than three (3) days prior to the service. You may provide their English names below.

Hebrew Names

For the Torah honors, we will call family and friends by their Hebrew name. Please use the following format when providing their Hebrew name:

Male
Person's Hebrew name BEN (son of) Father's Hebrew name v' (and) Mother's Hebrew name. Example: Shlomo ben Yitzchak v'Miriam

Female
Person's Hebrew name BAT (daughter of) Father's Hebrew name v' (and) Mother's Hebrew name. Example: Leah bat Moshe v'Aliza

If you do not know someone's Hebrew name:
For men, it is customary to use Avraham (our patriarch); for women, it is customary to use Sarah (our matriarch).

If someone converts to Judasim, their name is usually formatted as:
Person's Hebrew name ben/bat Avraham v'Sarah

We do not follow the Kohen and Levi format at a Bar Mitzvah service, but feel free to give anyone who is a Kohen or Levi the 1st or 2nd aliyah, respectively, should you wish.

For questions or concerns about Hebrew names, please contact Rabbi Korbrin or Rabbi Carrie.
