More about the Bris:

If you are Jewish, you know that your newborn baby boy has a ritual circumcision known as a "bris". The ceremony usually takes place on the 8th day of his life. A bris is performed by a Mohel (pronounced MOIL), who has expertise in the surgical performance of the circumcision, and religious training regarding the history and laws of the bris. As a Mohel, Dr. Livingston's motivation is to help provide both meaningful religious experience and a joyous occasion. He does this by taking time to explain each aspect of the ceremony, as well as reassurance and even a little humor.

 

Dr. Stephen Livingston is a Mohel, and a Board-Certified Obstetrician.

He received his religious training and mentoring from Rabbi Gary Atkins, a member of the Brit Kodesh program of the Conservative Rabbinical Assembly. As a physician, Dr. Livingston is a graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine, and the Ob-Gyn program at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is Board Certified in Ob-Gyn, and practices in Jupiter, Florida.

To schedule a Bris or for more information please call (561)799-3722.

 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

When and how is the Bris scheduled?
The Bris is scheduled by the Mohel based on Conservative Jewish law. It is expected to take place on the eighth day of life, according to the Jewish calendar on which each day starts at sundown. Consideration must also be given to crucial factors such as the baby's health and the occurrence of Shabbat.

What if only one parent is Jewish?
Bris Milah can be performed.  Dr. Livingston has performed many such ceremonies for families with one Jewish parent, and will be glad to do so provided you are planning to raise your child Jewish.

Can a grandparent arrange for the Bris?
While it is gratifying to receive the initial call from a grandparent, ultimately the arrangements and the consent for the Bris Milah must be made by a parent of the newborn.

Can the circumcision be covered by insurance?
No.  In his role as a Mohel, Dr. Livingston does not accept insurance.
