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

The Bris must be performed while maintaining social-distances guidelines with all attendees.

Brises can performed either indoors or outdoors to ensure this safety precaution.


Protective Attire

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

The Mohel will be wearing an N95 mask, gloves, and appropriate isolation attire.

21st Century Bris

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