Brit Milah (Circumcision)

The literal meaning of the word Bris (or Brit) is covenant, referring to the covenant God made with Abraham recorded in Genesis. The bris should be performed on the eighth day after birth. The Mohel, a person of the Jewish faith who is trained to do circumcision under the guidelines of the Jewish religion, receives certification in circumcision as well as training on how to do the procedure within the specifications of Jewish practice.
