Finding a mohel for your son’s brit, bris milah or Jewish circumcision ceremony is an important decision that requires research and planning.
What is a bris? On the eighth day of your Jewish son’s life, it is traditional to have a brit milah, or circumcision ceremony. The circumcision is performed by a certified mohel, and incorporates Jewish rituals and blessings and often followed by a celebratory meal. Baby girls can be welcomed into the Jewish community through a bris bat or simchat bat, in which family and friends are invited to connect with the child and a nearly six thousand year old Judaic custom.
