To Bris Or Not To Bris

Hosted By: 18Doors

Deciding whether to have a bris can be a challenging dilemma for some interfaith couples. Learn from Dr. Jonathan Meisel, pediatric surgeon, and mohel, the differences between a Jewish ritual bris and a circumcision performed in a hospital. Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe, Director of 18Doors Atlanta, will explore why some families choose not to have a bris and will share creative baby welcoming ceremonies and naming rituals.

This event is co-sponsored by Honeymoon Israel and JBaby Atlanta.
