Just Eight Days Old
Jewish religious circumcision (Brit Milah) ceremony.
This is My covenant between Me, and between
you and your offspring. You must circumcise every
Throughout all generations, every male
shall be circumcised when he is eight days old.
(Translation from 1917 JPS Tanach.)
"The rite of circumcision (Brit Milah) is one of the
most ancient practices in Judaism.
The Brit Milah is usually performed
on an eight day old baby by a Mohel, an expert
trained in the ritual and medical technique. This
religious family of 11 brothers and sisters shows
how joyful and full of love such a delicate
moment can be. The Brit Mila is one of the most important
events in the life of a Jewish man. It is usually a very emotional day where all the family gets
together to celebrate the sacred event that officially
introduces the baby into the Jewish world." - Deborah Sinai
