Birth

Brit Milah / Baby Naming

The arrival of a child has always been a cause for celebration in Judaism. We encourage the practice of having all boys circumcised on the eighth day following birth, unless there are medical reasons for delaying it. The Temple has a list of recommended mohalim (persons trained and authorized to perform
circumcisions). All are practising medical doctors.

The arrival of a baby girl is equally important. We invite parents to bring new-born children to synagogue on Friday night or Saturday morning for a special naming ceremony. This can be arranged by contacting Elana Fehler by email, or call (416) 789-3291, ext.532.
