Births

Birth is an especially sacred time. We dedicate this new life as having purpose and destiny. An integral part of that purpose is belonging to an ancient covenant and a community of faith.

Rabbi Benjamin Barnett and Education Director Deborah Eisenbach-Budner are available to officiate for a special ceremony to name your baby or to circumcise your son.

The circumcision ceremony is called a Bris, and it traditionally occurs on the eighth day of life, although this may be postponed for a variety of reasons. The doctor who performs a ritual circumcision is called a Mohel. You will want to schedule your mohel in advance of your delivery date. Even if you are not certain you are having a boy, you should call one or two months ahead of time to tentatively schedule the mohel.

Please call the Havurah office at 503-248-4662 if you have questions.
