Jeanne M. Hannah

Laurel let me know that "Hoo hah!" . . . It's a boy! Thus, attorney Epstein got an adjournment of trial so that he could attend the bris.

Jeanne, thank you for sharing. It is my hope that the Zeide (Yiddish for grandfather of the newborn) took the time to explain to the court that, in accordance with Torah (the Jewish Bible) women are considered to be born already circumcised in our hearts, by our very spiritual natures born into the covenant with G-d and therefore not requiring a special ritual. Further, a baby boy is named at the bris, whereas the baby girl is named at the first Torah reading after her birth, whether it is Monday, Thursday or Saturday (the days Torah is read in the synagogue). If Zeide wants to attend her baby-naming, he might need time off from trial for a little girl baby, too, in other words.
