Tradition has long ordained circumcision for every male child on their eighth day of life. We affirm the power of introducing our babies into the covenant, and seek to extend a non-physical version of this to girls as well. Upon birth or adoption of a baby of either gender, please contact our clergy. We can provide recommendations for a mohel (circumcisor) as well as liturgies for an at-home ceremony to welcome your baby. Please advise our Life Cycle chairpeople as well as your Village coordinators so that you can enjoy the support of the larger community through this joyous transition.
