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