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

The brit is performed anytime between sunrise and sunset on the eighth day from when the child was born.

If health complications delay the circumcision, it is performed immediately after the stable health of the child is confirmed.

Traditionally, it is preferable to perform the circumcision at the synagogue, following morning prayers.

The first person commanded to circumcise himself was Abraham, at the age of ninety-nine. YAHUVEH GOD told him (Genesis 17:7), “And I will establish a My covenant between Me and between you and between your seed after you throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant, to be to you for a YAH and to your seed after you.” Demonstrating his submission to YAH by marking the physical body with the sign of the covenant, Abraham revealed the intrinsic bond every Jew has with YAH.

YAHUVEH GOD commanded the Jewish people (Leviticus 12:2), “On the eighth day, the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.” The act of circumcision, marking the completion of the body, is a human act. This teaches us that our spiritual, emotional, moral and ethical perfection requires human effort. YAH cannot do it for us.

There are many partnerships into which a person will enter during his or her lifetime. Most of them, at some point, will come to a natural end, or will be broken by one of the parties. The brit milah,ritual circumcision, is a symbol of our partnership with YAH. Etched in the flesh of our physical bodies, the covenant will never end or be forgotten.

This covenant with YAH surpasses human comprehension. It is a bond that pledges unconditional devotion, no matter what may transpire between YAH and individual. It is a bond that is absolute and unchallengeable. For this reason a Jew is circumcised as an infant, when he has not yet developed his capacity for reasoning or making judgements, for the covenant of circumcision is not an intellectual or calculated partnership. The circumcision of an infant demonstrates that the connection between the Jews and YAH is beyond rationale.

YAH chose the very organ that is the source of life, which can also be chosen to use for the basest acts, as the site to be sanctified with circumcision. This gives us the profound message that we can use every physical drive for holy purposes.

For thousands of years, even under persecution, Jews have circumcised their sons using the services of a mohel, ritual circumciser, who knows all the intricacies of performing the circumcision. By having your son ritually circumcised, you join their ranks in connecting your child with G‑d in an unbreakable covenant.

 

Health Issues

It is of utmost importance that the brit, ritual circumcision, be held on the eighth day after the child’s birth. However, in the case of certain medical circumstances, when there is even a remote possibility that the child is not strong enough to undergo the surgical procedure, Jewish law requires that the circumcision be postponed until he has recovered. As Maimonides puts it, “It is always possible to perform a circumcision, whereas one cannot bring a Jewish soul back to life.”

Thus, if the baby is born premature, weak, or ill in any way, or if he is diagnosed with a health condition such as jaundice or an eye infection, the circumcision is temporarily postponed. We wait for the child’s full recovery before performing the circumcision. In certain cases, we wait seven full days after his recovery before performing the brit. Contact a competent rabbi or mohel, ritual circumciser, to discuss any circumstances that may necessitate a postponement.

In the case of twin boys, when one is healthy and can undergo a circumcision while the other is not, we make each brit separately; we do not wait to circumcise them both at the same time.

The Surgical Knife

The circumcision is almost painless for the child. Ritual circumcision is performed using a finely honed blade of surgical steel, like a scalpel, and a non-constricting guard which is placed over the foreskin. The procedure involves the removal of a small piece of skin; no actual flesh or muscle is cut at all.

A newborn will tend to cry as soon as his diaper is opened and he is uncovered. This may be due to a need to feel enclosed, or merely because he is feeling cold. As a mohel, I have always noticed that the baby starts to cry before the procedure has even begun. Notice, also, that the infant stops crying shortly after the procedure has been completed, and then usually falls asleep.

Many experienced mohels would not use a clamp, since it crushes and severs the skin, the nerve endings, and the blood vessels, causing extreme pain and trauma to the child.

 

PHYSICAL as well as SPIRITUAL CIRCUMCISION is crucial in life in our walk with YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH as YAHUVEH / YAHWEH has revealed in the HOLY SCRIPTURES and HIS Holy Prophets (for example, Apostle / Prophet Elisheva and Apostle / Prophet Ezra). Remember that ABBA YAHUVEH / YAHWEH used CIRCUMCISION to make a COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM AND HIS DESCENDANTS THEREAFTER as well as MOSES AND, HIS DESCENDANTS THEREAFTER.  Circumcision makes a big change to a boy or man in  the SPIRITUAL REALM! It sets a man apart for YAH or unto YAH in a very special way. There’s a special ANOINTING that flows from HEAVEN above to the man during and after the procedure. The man is more empowered against Satan and his demons.

Relevant HOLY SCRIPTURAL Readings:

Genesis 17; 21; 34

Exodus 12:43-45

Yesha‘yahu (Isaiah) 40:27–41:16

Acts 7:1–8;

Romans 3:19–5:6;

Galatians 3:15–18; 5:1–6;

Colossians 2:11–15;

Messianic Jews (Hebrews) 7:1–19; 11:8–12

There is a DOUBLE BLESSING AND ANOINTING in CIRCUMCISION as commanded by YAHUVEH / YAHWEH!!! YAHUVEH / YAHWEH has revealed this to HIS Holy Prophets.

Exodus 12:43-45 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

43 Adonai said to Moshe and Aharon, “This is the regulation for the Pesach lamb: no foreigner is to eat it. 44 But if anyone has a slave he bought for money, when you have circumcised him, he may eat it. 45 Neither a traveler nor a hired servant may eat it.

Genesis 17:1-6, 9-14, 23-31 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

17 When Avram was 99 years old Adonai appeared to Avram and said to him, “I am El Shaddai [God Almighty]. Walk in my presence and be pure-hearted. I will make my covenant between me and you, and I will increase your numbers greatly.” Avram fell on his face, and God continued speaking with him: “As for me, this is my covenant with you: you will be the father of many nations. Your name will no longer be Avram [exalted father], but your name will be Avraham [father of many], because I have made you the father of many nations. I will cause you to be very fruitful. I will make nations of you, kings will descend from you.

God said to Avraham, “As for you, you are to keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you, generation after generation. 10 Here is my covenant, which you are to keep, between me and you, along with your descendants after you: every male among you is to be circumcised. 11 You are to be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; this will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 Generation after generation, every male among you who is eight days old is to be circumcised, including slaves born within your household and those bought from a foreigner not descended from you. 13 The slave born in your house and the person bought with your money must be circumcised; thus my covenant will be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant. 1Any uncircumcised male who will not let himself be circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin — that person will be cut off from his people, because he has broken my covenant.”

23 Avraham took Yishma‘el his son, all the slaves born in his house and all who had been bought with his money, every male among the people in Avraham’s household, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin that very day, just as God had said to him.

(Maftir) 24 Avraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, 25 and Yishma‘el his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26 Avraham and Yishma‘el his son were circumcised on the same day; 27 and all the men in his household, both slaves born in his house and those bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him.

Genesis 34:13-19 Good News Translation (GNT)

The Rape of Dinah

13 Because Shechem had disgraced their sister Dinah, Jacob’s sons answered Shechem and his father Hamor in a deceitful way. 14 They said to him, “We cannot let our sister marry a man who is not circumcised; that would be a disgrace for us. 15 We can agree only on the condition that you become like us by circumcising all your males. 16 Then we will agree to intermarriage. We will settle among you and become one people with you. 17 But if you will not accept our terms and be circumcised, we will take her and leave.”

18 These terms seemed fair to Hamor and his son Shechem, 19 and the young man lost no time in doing what was suggested, because he was in love with Jacob’s daughter. He was the most important member of his family.

20 Hamor and his son Shechem went to the meeting place at the city gate and spoke to the people of the town: 21 “These men are friendly; let them live in the land with us and travel freely. The land is large enough for them also. Let us marry their daughters and give them ours in marriage. 22 But these men will agree to live among us and be one people with us only on the condition that we circumcise all our males, as they are circumcised. 23 Won’t all their livestock and everything else they own be ours? So let us agree that they can live among us.” 24 All the citizens of the city agreed with what Hamor and Shechem proposed, and all the males were circumcised.

25 Three days later, when the men were still sore from their circumcision, two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, the brothers of Dinah, took their swords, went into the city without arousing suspicion, and killed all the men, 26 including Hamor and his son Shechem. Then they took Dinah from Shechem’s house and left. 27 After the slaughter Jacob’s other sons looted the town to take revenge for their sister’s disgrace. 28 They took the flocks, the cattle, the donkeys, and everything else in the city and in the fields. 29 They took everything of value, captured all the women and children, and carried off everything in the houses.

30 Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have gotten me into trouble; now the Canaanites, the Perizzites, and everybody else in the land will hate me. I do not have many men; if they all band together against me and attack me, our whole family will be destroyed.”

31 But they answered, “We cannot let our sister be treated like a common whore.”
