And He Shall Be Called In Israel...

Our friends had a baby boy, and the brit was on Shabbat. I dont think there's any difference between a Shabbat brit and a regular brit except that we had to walk there. Anways, it was a nice ceremony, lots of chanting, baby crying, etc. The part I didnt get was why do people insist on speaking in Yiddish when calling people up for a ceremony? The guy calling and the guy being called dont speak Yiddish. Yet every time they always say "mit the brucha", "da rebbe", or "foon" something or another. I've noticed this at weddings too when calling people up for shave brachot. They named the baby Yehuda, the father said that it is accepted that the wife picks the first name, and she named him Yehuda to thank God (hoda) for giving them the child. I like that, not naming after dead (or alive) people.

Yehuda, son of Nissim and Ricky, welcome to the fold!!

Things sound more authentically Jewish if you throw in a "Mit da Brucha" and other classic Yiddish lines
