A bris and/or baby naming can and should be one of the most joyous times in a parent’s life. However, most mothers feel anything but comfort at their newborn son’s bris. As your Rabbi, I can help make this ceremony meaningful and special while easing some of the tension surrounding the actual surgical procedure.

A bris is always done in conjunction with a certified mohel (or a physician/surgeon if a mohel is not available).

Choosing a baby’s English or American name is done prior to leaving the hospital. Selecting a child’s Hebrew name can sometimes be difficult. As your Rabbi I can help you find a suitable name that relates to that special ancestor, whether it is a specific one to one relationship (Mordechai to Mordechai) or just using the first initial or a favorite (deceased) uncle or aunt.
