The brit bat is the covenant ceremony that parallels the boy's brit milah. In this ceremony we welcome a new baby girl into the world with thanks and blessing and give her a Hebrew name.
Generally, we hold this ceremony one month after the baby is born, rather than the eight days of the boy's brit milah. However, since this ceremony is a modern invention, there is no time set for the ceremony.
The service is generally held in the home, with a small gathering of friends and family. The service can be personalized with songs and readings chosen by the parents. We share stories about the meaning of the baby's name and the person for whom the baby is named, as well as ways in which we pray the baby will be like him or her. The service generally lasts 20 minutes and may be followed by a light breakfast or luncheon.
We welcome the opportunity to work with all kinds of families to celebrate the beginning of their child's life. The charge for planning and facilitating this ritual is $600 in Boulder and $650 in Denver or any other area within an hour's drive from Boulder.
