While there are no specific ancient traditional rituals for welcoming a baby girl into the community, many families have found ways to fill that void. Watch the video to learn about some of the new traditions involved in a Lit. Covenant. Judaism is defined by the covenant - the contract between the Jewish people and God. God promises to make us abundant and to give us the land of Israel; we promise to obey God's commandments. This covenant begins with Abraham and is reiterated throughout the Torah. A brit milah, literally a covenant of circumcision, is often simply called a brit or bris. bat ceremony (covenant of a daughter).
As part of Ritualwell’s partnership with BimBam (formerly G-dcast), we present a series of videos that share personal stories about Jewish lifecycle events.
