Bris

At Bouer Catering Group we’d like to be one of the first to say “Mazel tov!” Welcoming a new baby boy into the world is a blessing like no other, and as Jewish parents you’ll want to make sure he’s introduced to the Jewish community following the age-old tradition of a bris. A bris, also known as a brit milah, occurs on the eighth day of a baby boy’s life and involves a circumcision-centered ceremony that signifies the covenant made between the Jewish people and God.

Jewish families have a wide variety of options when it comes to choosing the location where they’d like the bris to occur. Some common options include:

  • Hospital
  • Home
  • Synagogue
  • Event space

It doesn’t matter where you choose to hold your baby’s bris, so long as you have a mohel present to conduct the ceremony. A mohel is a trained Jewish man or woman who can perform the circumcision, as well as lead the religious ceremony. Oftentimes, the mohel may have recommendations as to where the ceremony should be held. At Bouer Catering Group, we also work with two local South Florida synagogues, Temple Beth Emet and Temple Kol Tikvah, that can perform the ceremony, as well as host the celebration afterwards.

Although the most important element of a bris is the circumcision procedure, there are many other rituals and customs associated with this special day, some of which include:

  • Ritual prayers and blessings
  • Baby naming
  • Celebratory meal

For the celebratory meal, you’ll want to make sure that your guests are fed delicious and kosher food. Luckily for you, Bouer Catering Group has catered to hundreds of bris throughout the years. We love rejoicing with the happy family members and friends who have been honored with an invitation to such an important day. And we know how to prepare and serve up delicious food that is worthy of this great occasion.

A bris traditionally takes place during the day, which means you may desire to come up with a menu that is more appropriate to brunch or lunch than dinner. This isn’t a problem! We can serve up some of the most fantastic omelets, cheese dishes, fruit and vegetable platters, and salads you’ve ever tasted! At Bouer Catering Group we believe in providing you with a custom designed occasion. To get started on planning your bris, give us a call right away at (954) 689-0110. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
