A Bris in the Time of Corona


What has Changed?

The Pandemic has presented an unprecedented disruption of Jewish Life. 

Jewish Law Teaches that safety is the greatest priority and as a result, the Bris ceremony will look a little different.


Social Distancing and Vaccination Status

The Bris must be performed in compliance with CDC guidelines regarding vaccine status and distancing. 

Brises can performed either indoors or outdoors to ensure these safety precautions.


Protective Attire

All unvaccinated attendees are required to wear a mask for the duration of the ceremony.

The Mohel will be properly masked and gloved both during the procedure and the ceremony.

21st Century Bris

Like many gatherings in this age, in addition to in person guests, you are welcome and encouraged to invite as many people as you'd like to the ceremony via video conference platforms.
