Can you have a brit on Shabbat?


Yet, if the baby was born on the previous Shabbos – meaning from Friday night (after nightfall) until Saturday night (before sunset) – one can and must perform the bris milah on Shabbos.

If the baby was born between sunset and nightfall either on Friday or on Shabbos, a rabbi must be consulted.

If the bris milah is delayed (it is a delayed bris, due to illness of the baby) it is not permitted to have the bris on Shabbos.

Best wishes.
