Kiddush and anointing for baby blessings

Posted on: October 9th, 2018 by Susanna

At this interfaith baby blessing we combined the kiddush, the Jewish blessing of the wine, with an anointing taught to me by Rabbi Gelberman, where the baby is given lemon juice, for life will sometimes be bitter, and then honey (sugar water), for sometimes life will be sweet, then a drop of wine is placed on the babies lips, for whether bitter or sweet, it is up to us to partake in life’s richness and give it meaning.
