WATCH: Let's hear it for the bris-boy in the bris-mobile!

I used to mock all those “theme-bar mitzvahs” that Jews across the pond used to do. Over the years, the trend spilled over here, too.

But according to an Israeli online magazine called Saloona, there’s a new trend going on Israel. A disconcerting one, I may add. For the sake of my brethren in the Goldena Medina, I pray it stays on this side of the pond. (Video has no sound)

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.
