page Simchat Bat
When our daughter, Adira, was born, we were faced with the same dilemma many Jewish parents face: There are no traditional rituals to mark the birth of a girl. Luckily, several new ceremonies have developed in recent years and after looking at those, we put together a ceremony called a simchat bat (joy of a daughter). We wrapped Adira in my tallit (prayer shawl) and recited prayers to welcome her as a new member of the Jewish people. At the end her four grandparents recited a poem based on a Talmudic passage to express our wishes for the person we hope Adira will grow up to be.
