WHAT IS A BRIS?

Bris Milah, ritual Jewish circumcision, is one of the most fundamental precepts of the Jewish religion. It is referred to in the Torah as The Covenant of Abraham, since our forefather Abraham was the first to receive the commandment concerning circumcision from God 4000 years ago. The medical procedure of circumcision is an important, but not the only, part. A bris takes your baby boy and and bonds him to thousands of years of tradition in the presence of family and friends. A bris can be a catered affair in a restaurant or hotel room, or a private ceremony with just the parents and baby. Regardless of its location, it is always a gathering with important loved ones at your side to participate in this commandment.
