The day of the Brit Milah
The day of the Brit Milah

On the day of the Brit, we'll need a collection of medical and ritual supplies. Please bring the following:

4 Disposable Diapers
Cloth Diapers measuring 75X75 cm (new)

1 Package of wet wipes
100 pack of gauze measuring 5X5 cm (Behind the counter)

1 10 pack of sterile gauze 7.5X7.5 cm 

15 ml of Novimol (behind the counter)
1 New Container of Vaseline* (212 grams)

     *There's presently a Vaseline shortage. This is a good alternative. (Behind the counter)

1 Tube of Prilidan or Emla Cream** (Behind the counter)
1 Bottle of Grape Juice
1 Kiddush Cup for the Brachot

1 Pillow with cover

1 Baby Blanket
1 Pacifier (if your baby uses one)​

2 Tallitot

2 Kippot

If the Brit is not in a shul, and you won't be bringing a Kesei Eliyahu from anywhere else:

6 stackable Keter chairs

1 folding table (around 110x50 cm)

If the Brit is not in your home, please make sure the supplies arrive to the site 30 minutes before the ceremony is meant to begin.

Clothing- Please dress the baby in an outfit that has pants that are separate from the shirt.  And the outfit should be long pants, a long shirt, and an undershirt.


** Prilidan and Emla are numbing creams that tend to reduce the pain experienced by the baby. Please apply the cream to the entire penis (not just the foreskin) one hour before the brit is meant to start. In order that the cream will not re-absorb into the diaper, place a piece of saran wrap on top of the penis.


*** If your baby lack the G6PD enzyme, you must consult with the attending physcian to make sure it's safe to use these creams. 

**** There are times that children can have an allergic reaction to these types of creams and that could push off the bris to the ninth day. To make sure that your child doesn't have a reaction to the cream, please apply a small amount to his arm the day before the brit milah and monitor the reaction. Provided there is none, follow the previous instructions for application on the day of the event.
