Bris Pix

Before I get too far behind in posting pictures, here are a few from last week's bris. It was a very emotional ceremony!
This one is from after the ceremony; the mohel is demonstrating how a baby might balance on your arm like a tree frog would, as we explain why we call Micah our little tree frog -- and why we made our challah in the shape of a frog.
Mohel Ken Katz.

Grandpa Les meets Micah for the first time.

These were the two Jewish "men" who were the official witnesses to Micah's bris. The qualifications for witnesses were that they had to be shomer-shabbos observant and past the age of bar mitzvah. These guys must have had their bar mitzvah just before coming over for the bris!

Non bris photo, but fun to see Micah beginning to discover the world around him.


  1. Congrats to you both, Micah is so beautiful. I enjoy being invited to many of my jewish friends celebrations, your story brings back many wonderful memories. Enjoy your baby!
