Beyond The Bris (Circumcision Ceremony): Creating Innovative Ceremonies for Welcoming Children

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We have welcomed baby boys into the covenant with the ceremony of brit milah (ritual circumcision) for thousands of years. For those who decide not to circumcise or not to do so publicly, those welcoming baby girls, and those looking for non-sex-based rituals, how can we create meaningful ceremonies to mark this moment? Come explore new and renewed traditions, including ritual foot washing and a 5-senses ritual. By examining our traditions and values, we will create our own rituals.
