A Bris Milah ceremony was held in the European Quarter in Brussels, Belgium on Thursday, August 20, for the son of Shliach Rabbi Levi Matusof, Director of European Jewish Public Affairs.
Held at the European Jewish Community Centre, rabbis and Jewish activists of the European Union institutions were present.
Grandfather Rabbi Yehuda Matusof, Chabad Shliach in Cannes-France and great-grandfather Rabbi Chaim Meir Minkowitz, of the elder Chasidim in Montreal, were honored.
The baby was named Menachem Mendel, after the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
A Reuters photographer was present too and included the event in “Images o the Day.”
“In the Jewish religion, it is a tradition to perform circumcision when a boy is eight days old,” it was explained.
