Ritual

Brit Milah (Bris)/Brit Bat

The birth of a child is a wonderful event for a family and couple.
Judaism celebrates birth with the rituals of Brit Milah (Covenant of
Circumcision) for a boy and Brit Bat (Daughter's Covenant) for a girl.
Brit Milah is traditionally held on the 8th day of the child's life and
is performed by a mohel who is trained in the ritual of circumcision. The
Brit Bat for a girl may be held any time after the birth, but generally
within a month.

For more information about either of these rituals please contact Rabbi Fine
at rabbi@synagogue.org or (201) 444-9320.
