The commandment of circumcision, brit milah, is found in Genesis 17:10-14 and Leviticus 12:3.
The first Jew to be circumcised was Abraham, at G-d’s command. Brit milah is the first commandment specific to the Jewish people.
Yesterday was our grandson’s brit, or circumcision ceremony.
It is at this time, that the child is given his name.
Karen and I and wish all our friends and relatives a lovely and meaningful Shabbat.
