Bris Milah:The Covenant

Bris Milah, ritual circumcision, is one of the most fundamental precepts of the Jewish religion. It is referred to in the Torah as the covenant of Abraham, since our forefasmiley babyther Abraham was the first to receive the commandment concerning circumcision from G-d.  “And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every male throughout your generations” (Genesis 17:12). More than any other Jewish ritual, Bris Milah is an expression of Jewish identity. Its fulfillment symbolizes an affirmation of faith in Abraham’s ancient, and still vibrant, covenant with G-d. Through ritual circumcision, parents create with their precious child yet another link in the continuing chain of our people that has proudly survived the challenges to its physical and spiritual existence for thousands of years.
Rabbi Avraham Mammon, is a trained and certified mohel (ritual circumciser) located in Rochester, NY. He provides services throughout the Western New York area, including Buffalo and Syracuse.

“We thank you G-D for the precious gift of new life and for the blessing of parenthood which allows us to share in the miracle of creation. Please grant our child a long, healthy life filled with happiness, that he may pursue the path of righteousness, truth, humility and a love for all. As we celebrate our son’s bris today, we dedicate ourselves to provide all that he will need to grow in the traditions of Torah and Jewish values, to enter into marriage as a caring human being, and to become a compassionate person with a deep concern for family and community.”
