Does blood have to drawn for a bris


If medical necessity (Chordee )requires a surgical procedure and hospital circumcision at 6 months of age, what does Jewish law require?


The best thing would be to have a qualified circumciser (mohel) at the surgery to take care of the halachic requirements. If this is not possible, then as a last resort the child can be taken to a mohel afterwards. I would strongly suggest that you speak with Rabbi Pesach Krohn, and comes highly recommended and experienced. Please see the attached link for his contact information. He will be able to assist you further on this matter.

Best Wishes
