As we are experiencing more Jewish tradition and participating in the local synagogue, we chose names with meanings that are similar to their English names and/or character. This was a very special decision and was incorporated in the Consecration Ceremony last September. This was our family commitment to uphold teachings and principles in Torah for our children. There are incredible values that can be extracted throughout the Jewish traditions and Biblical examples. I'm truly enjoying this journey!
Below are pictures of the consecration certificates signed by the Rabbi and Education Director from Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel and a link to the history of this synagogue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahavath_Beth_Israel_(Boise,_Idaho)
