The blessing of a newborn baby is a miraculous event that is celebrated in Judaism. The birth of a child is an important and joyous lifecycle event. For baby girls, the big celebration is the baby naming ceremony on her eighth day of life. For baby boys, Jews are commandment to perform a ritual circumcision in the form of a Brit Milah ceremony. The Bris symbolizes the child's covenant with G-d. Babies are not given a name or called by name until the eighth day. The circumcision is so important that it may take place on Shabbat.
