Celebrating our covenant with God – end of Lech Lecha unit party

This week we finished the last section of our Chumash/Torah unit Parashat Lech Lecha.  In this section, Avraham performs the mitzvah of Brit Milah.  We learned the meaning of this covenant with God and then made a life connection to this commandment by bringing pictures of the students’ Brit Millah or baby pictures.

The brit milah (Hebrew: בְּרִית מִילָה‬, pronounced [bʁit miˈla], “covenant of circumcision”; Yiddish pronunciation: bris [bʀɪs]) is a Jewish religious male circumcision ceremony performed by a mohel (“circumciser”) on the eighth day of the infant’s life.
