Cantor Sherman’s recommendations...

One can sign up and create a personalized announcement through beautifully-designed cards to share information regarding the Simcha (happy occasion).

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
