The 8 day old baby was born to a single mother who has long been a member of the Meir Panim family in the small city of Or Akiva. With the birth of a boy, the Meir Panim staff took it upon themselves, as the mother’s extended family, to organize and host the Brit Milah and the Seudat Mitzvah (festive meal). The Mohel volunteered his services and the festive dinner, cooked and prepared in Meir Panim, created a joyous and emotional affair. The mother was overwhelmed with joy that her baby was received with such love and care and all the guests expressed their hope to celebrate together again in the future.
