I have a bris to go to next week, and I'm not sure what an appropriate gift is for the occasion. Should I give money? If so, how much, and if not, what do I give instead?
A bris, or brit milah, is the ritual circumcision for a Jewish baby boy that takes place on the eighth day of life. It's also an opportunity for family and friends to meet the baby, share a celebratory meal and, yes, bring gifts. But just because it's a bris, the gift doesn't need to be any different from any other...
