A New Hebrew Name for Sophie

Tonight we performed a special Jewish ceremony in our home to change Sophie’s hebrew name.  There is spiritual significance behind performing this ritual.  Just as G-d changed Abraham and Jacob’s names during significant times in their lives, so too we have changed Sophie’s Hebrew name with the hope of forging a new, healing path forward for her.

During the ceremony, we added the name “Chava” to Sophie’s hebrew name, thereby changing her full name to Chava Shalva Gavriella bat Shani Aliza.  “Chava”, the first woman on earth, symbolizes the mother of all life.  We hope the significance of this new powerful, strong, name will allow her overcome all of the challenges she faces.

Moving forward, please keep Chava Shalva Gavriella bat Shani Aliza in your positive thoughts and prayers.
