Sandra Bullock Had Bris for New Son

As you may have already heard, Sandra Bullock is in the process of adopting a baby from New Orleans, something the “Blindside” actress has managed to keep a secret even under an intense media spotlight over her crumbling relationship with cheating husband Jesse James.
In an interview with People magazine, Bullock spoke about baby Louis (named after singer Louis Armstrong) and her plans for divorce. She also mentioned that she and James–she initially planned on adopting the baby with James, not as a single parent–had a Jewish circumcision ceremony featuring a mohel for Louis.
“A friend of ours helped arrange for a bris at the house, because we couldn’t go [to a hospital]. The mohel [a person trained to perform a bris] came to us. You have never seen adults more panicked about what was about to happen to their son.”
Interesting for a number of reasons, but namely because as far as I can tell Bullock is not Jewish (there are some reports that say her mom may have been, but even if Bullock does consider herself Jewish, up until now she has been non-practicing) and if those leaked photos of James giving a Nazi salute and reports that his dad says he’s long been obsessed with Hitler were any indication, he probably isn’t Jewish either (unless he’s self-hating).
Anyway, Mazel Tov Sandra!

    What about the obvious? This lovely child is black and with the controversy that her soon to be ex-Jess is white with his Nazi pics * ex-bombshell Nazi girl on the side * his Hitler pose pics. This should be a major concern! The Nazi beliefs are derogatory towards ethnicity. Sandra was obviously aware of Jess Nazi beliefs and tattoos and paraphernalia he had around his shop, we can assume she supported or had the same beliefs? To put it bluntly how will she protect her innocent child from Jess the Nazi believer?! Im concerned for the well fair of this child to grow up to be a proud african american. The adoption agency and african community should seriously investigate and reconsider the childs welfare, how can they let this child be adopted with all that conflict going on? For Money? Is this child truly and adoption from the purest sense of love or a media spin? In reality we dont want a innocent child even remotely being in close contact with a Nazi believer especially a child of a african american heritage and proud culture. Whats everyone feed back on this?

    AM, give the woman some credit for brains! This child will be fine, and lucky to have Sandra as a mother. She is not going to be married to Jesse much longer. Louis will be fine. I expect he won’t be doing any raising of this child.
    IMO, why would a mohel agree to do a bris IF she were’t Jewish?

    “why would a mohel agree to do a bris IF she were’t Jewish?” Easy answer to that: money!
    It is a shame that she had her perfect baby circumcised for no reason whatsoever. It is almost like she opted for a Jewish ceremony to offset James’ antisemitic actions. Regardless, it is a shame that the boy had his sex organ cut.

    Circumcision goes in and out of medical popularity over the years. It has many plus’s, and not so many minus’s.
    Much love and happiness to Sandra and Louis!

    Maybe the mohel agreed because she wanted the baby circumcised and wanted to protect his privacy. Therefore, rather than try to “smuggle” him into a hospital for the procedure, a mohel can come to the home and perform it.
    She obviously was very careful about keeping Louis under wraps until she was ready to deal with the media, and I’m sure the circumcision was just another detail to many that she dealt with.

    Even if Bullock was “half-Jewish”, observant Jews would consider her Jewish if her mom was the Jewish parent. She would not be the first non-observant Jew to give a baby boy a bris and want to raise her kid Jewish, for reasons of identity, if nothing else.
