Bris - Circumcision Ceremony:

The bris or brit milah, is the covenant ceremony in which we welcome a baby boy into the world with thanks and blessing. A mohel performs the circumcision and the rabbi blesses the newborn and gives him a Hebrew name.

Generally, we hold this ceremony eight days after the baby is born, as commanded in the Torah.

The service is generally held in the home, with a small gathering of friends and family. The service can be personalized with songs and readings chosen by the parents. We share stories about the meaning of the baby's name and the person for whom the baby is named, as well as ways in which we pray the baby will be like him or her.

Rabbi Korngold or Rabbi Yakar can join the moel of your choosing in conducting a personalized ceremony for your family. Rabbi Jamie Korngold officiates at ceremonies in and around the Boulder, Colorado area while Rabbi Evon Yakar officiates at ceremonies in the South Lake Tahoe, California region.
