6: Anna Elizabeth – Eliana Aliza, our sweet baby girl, welcome to the world. We are so excited to be able to have your baby naming on one of the most joyous holidays of the Jewish calendar – Simhat Torah, a day in which we celebrate both the ending and beginning of our most sacred book the Torah. What better day to welcome you into the Jewish community and to bestow upon you a Hebrew name which will be used to call you to the Torah when you become a bat mitzvah and throughout your life. The name we chose for you, Eliana Aliza, means God answered with joy and that is how you came into our lives. We asked God to bring us a child to complete our family, and God did in fact answer us and brought us joy in you. That is also what we wish for you – that you should grow up knowing that God does and will answer, that joy can be found in our traditions and in our practice, and that Torah be central in your life. So Anna Elizabeth, Eliana Aliza, our sweet little Annie, welcome to the world, welcome to the Jewish Community, and welcome to our family.
