Briss Day

Brit Milah
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brit milah (Hebrew: בְרִית מִילָה [bə'rīt mī'lā] literally: "covenant [of] circumcision"), also berit milah (Sephardi), bris milah (Ashkenazi pronunciation) or bris (Yiddish) is a religious ceremony within Judaism that welcomes infant Jewish boys into a covenant between God and the Children of Israel through ritual circumcision performed by a mohel ("circumcisor") in the presence of family and friends, followed by a celebratory meal (seudat mitzvah).

10 Things People Forget in Preparing a Bris

Top 10 Things People Forget When Planning A Bris

by Yvonne Wolf

1. Assembling a complete list of phone numbers and e-mail addresses of invited guests BEFORE the baby’s birth

2. Planning 3 separate menus to accommodate the time of the Bris (since this depends on availability of Mohel); a morning menu, a lunch menu and a late afternoon/dinner menu.

3. Preparing an empty chair for “Elijah”

4. Appointing a K’vatter/K’vatterin (person who brings in the baby)

5. Appointing a Sandak (person who holds the baby during the circumcision)

6. Purchasing Yarmulkes for male guests to wear during the ceremony

7. Dressing the baby in a "nightgown" or an "easy-access" outfit

8. Purchasing a special pillow/pillowcase for the baby to rest on

9. Making sure cameras are fully charged and there is enough memory/film

10. #1 THING PEOPLE FORGET ………Securing a parking spot for the Mohel!!
