About Us

From the celebration of new life to the saying of Kaddish, B’er Chayim can be your spiritual family for honoring life cycle events as well as the Jewish holy days. Rabbi Perman and our members can assist in the preparation and celebration of Bar and Bat Mitzvah, weddings, brit and baby namings, and sitting shiva. During the year, you will enjoy participating in our ritual services, including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Purim, ~ and other events which honor and celebrate the history of our people.
