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.
