Cantor Sherman’s recommendations...

These are people and places that I know personally and am happy to recommend. I would be thrilled to use them (and have used some of them) for any of my own personal or family events.

From the Ne'eman Foundation: A free book for your new child or grandchild.
The Ne'eman Foundation is happy to send you a special edition of The Bamboo Cradle. "It is always exciting to welcome a new baby into the family. In addition, the birth of a child is a moment of great religious significance - a reaffirmation of ties which extend backwards to the beginning of the history of the Jewish people - and forward into the future."
If you would like a free copy of this book as a gift, please contact Sura Jeselson at
