Mira's name, like most Jewish names, has a story. She is named after her beloved Great-Grandpa Sidney, who passed away a few years ago. His Hebrew name was Meshullam, hence the M in Miriam. For her Hebrew name, we used the root of Meshullam (Shalom) and chose the feminine Shulamit. She was officially named at Temple Beth El on October 23. It was a small but festive event.
Solly arriving at temple.
Our friends Dave, Hannah, and Leo, and Anna, Aaron, Ephraim, and Shiphrah came to bear witness. Solly, Ephraim, and Leo had a blast running around.
The temple had a potluck after the service, and we brought tons of bagels and lox. Not quite New York standards, but yummy nonetheless.
Of course, she slept through most of it!
