Brit Milah: Welcoming a Baby Boy

The Brit Milah (or ‘bris’) is a sign of a baby boy’s covenant with G-d. Watch this animated video short to learn about finding a mohel, what a Brit Milah is all about, and some popular modern spins on this ancient tradition.

This particular video about Brit Milah (בְּרִית מִילָה‎ “covenant of circumcision”) is part of a larger series exploring the basics of Jewish Lifecycles. Jewish tradition is often specific. There are a myriad of Jewish subcultures and people, and the conversations in this series explores the array of choices people make in interpreting ritual today. To learn more about Jewish Wedding traditions, Jewish Mourning Traditions and Jewish Baby Traditions please take a look at our collection of 20+ videos about rituals – old and new – presented through animation and interviews, here on our site.

This project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of its Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
