Submit your simcha announcements


Celebrate your family's special occasions with a Simcha announcement in the Light!

Simcha announcements for births, bar or bat mitzvahs, engagements, weddings or anniversaries are run in the weekly newspaper on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our Simcha announcements are free and may include a color or black and white photograph. The Simcha being submitted must be within the past six months (or coming in the near future, when applicable). Anniversaries must be 10-year or 25-year increments.
