This second shot is of a sign at Shareh Chesed Hospital in Jerusalem. A brit mila hall is a room where the circumcision ceremony is carried out on the eighth day of a boy’s life.

A circumcision is a cause for celebration because it celebrates the birth of a boy who has become part of the Jewish people, and after the ceremony there is usually a meal for the guests.
