Aidan's Brit Milah (Jewish Circumcision)


My cousin Jeremy and his awesome wife, Marna, had their second baby boy last week. Aidan's Brit Milah (bris to some, circumcision to others), was this past Sunday.


It is the traditional Jewish ceremony that welcomes a baby boy into the Jewish Faith. It is performed by a Mohel, who is trained in both the surgical portion and the religious one. This ceremony is always filled with emotion...family and friends gather and sing, celebrate, and eat with the family.



I couldn't help but sneak up with Marna to see him before he was brought out to the waiting family and friends.
