Louis' Bris

Sandra Bullock may not be Jewish, but that didn't stop her from giving newborn son Louis Bardo a traditional circumcision. Known as a brit milah in Hebrew, the tradition has been a cornerstone of the religion. Dating back to the time of Abraham, all Jewish men are required to be circumcised by a mohel (a person trained in the practice) on the eighth day of life. While circumcisions are regularly performed for all babies in hospitals, it is interesting that Sandra chose to go the Jewish route.

In the new issue of People magazine, Sandra opened up about Louis' January bris. The event took place long before Jesse's Nazi-obsessed mistress Bombshell surfaced, so he would have been there for the Jewish ceremony. The fact that Jesse attended his son's Jewish-style circumcision is a little suspect, given that pictures surfaced only months later of the motorcross star giving a Nazi salute.

"A friend of ours helped arrange for a bris at the house, because we couldn't go [to a hospital for the procedure] The mohel came to us. You have never seen adults more panicked about what was about to happen to their son, but the celebration and the amount of love we felt and the pride in the little man whom we love so, so much became the greatest moment I have ever had in my life."
It is so nice to know that Sandra is happy and has made peace with her family life. Little Louis seems to be bringing the actress bundles of joy. Congrats Mommy!
