Mazal Tov on the newest addition to your family!

If you are expecting (or have just had) a baby boy, you may be considering a Brit Milah or Bris ceremony for your son. This ritual, which occurs on the eighth day of the baby’s life, includes the timeless ceremony of circumcision and the formal entry into the covenant of the Jewish people. A Brit Milah, is a physical symbol of the relationship between G‑d and the Jewish people. It is a constant reminder of what the Jewish mission entails.

The ritual is carried out by a skilled Mohel and is a joyous celebration marking the entrance of another Jewish male into the covenant of Abraham. Traditionally, the Hebrew name is announced at this time as well, linking him both to his family and to the historic tradition of our people. 

Yes! We know a well trained and certified Mohel right here in Birmingham, Alabama - Rabbi Levi Weinbaum.

If you are expecting (or have just had) a girl, the Baby Naming ceremony is a beautiful tradition performed shortly after a baby girl’s birth.

We invite the baby and her parents to join us as at the Torah to give the newborn baby girl her Hebrew name and offer a blessing to her and her family. This tradition is particularly lovely since the community can share in this joyous occasion together with the family.

We look forward to sharing this happy occasion with you, and your family.
