The list of items to prepare to circumcise your son and honors.
All post brit instructions will be discussed after we are done. I will remove the bandage about a day after we circumcise the baby. All you need to do is try and keep him happy and comfortable . You can use acamol or Tylenol as directed by your pediatrician
HONORS AT BRIS FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS:
Honors are optional. A minyan (10 men) is not needed by Jewish law.
CHAIR OF ELIJAH – One person to put the baby on a chair during ceremony.
SANDEK – One man to hold the baby while I circumcise the baby.
AMIDAH LIBRACHA – One person to hold the baby during naming.
BRACHOT ON THE WINE AND NAMING
If there are more members of the family to honor, please bring it to my attention and I’ll try my best to include everyone.
