A Bris in the Time of Corona


What has Changed?

The Novel Corona Virus 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 a face shield, 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.
