Greeting the Child

Brit Milah -

Greeting the Child

Everyone attending the Brit Milah should be present at the location of the ceremony. When the infant is brought into the room, everyone exclaims Barukh Haba!:

The Mohel then recites the following passage from the Torah:

"And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy. Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace" Numbers 25:10-12
