  2. Hi Hannah,

    Are you responding the offer I posed on Taking a Break? In this article I offered to research and write about any Brooklyn Jewish groups of interest to readers. If so, I can definitely write about the Crown Heights community. This area is home to Lubavitch Jews, so I’m going to assume this is the group you mean, but correct me if I’m wrong.

    In direct response to your immediate concern, there are different naming scenarios that ensue depending on whether a woman has a boy or girl. Girls are named at a kiddush, or reception following Shabbat prayers. Boys are named at the bris or circumcision ceremony, usually 7 days following the birth. However, if the baby boy has jaundice – which is perfectly normal for some babies – the bris will be delayed until the jaundice reaches an acceptable level. The night before the bris, there’s a ceremony called a wacht nacht, in which little boys come to say the Shema or Hear O’ Israel prayer near the baby’s crib or its vicinity.

    You’ll find a fuller description of all Jewish customs around pregnancy and birth specific to the Lubavitch in this great website I found called Chabad.org. In particular, look at this page: http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/72141/jewish/Pregnancy-and-Birth.htm.

    I hope this answers your question to some degree, and I look forward to doing more research on the community going forward.
