Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman held the Jewish ritual "bris" for their son Max Liron Bratman at their Beverly Hills home Sunday, January 20.

Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman have celebrated the birth of their newborn son, Max Liron Bratman, by inducting him into Judaism with a traditional bris ceremony.

Bris is a religious ceremony within Judaism to welcome infant Jewish boys into a covenant between God and the Children of Israel through ritual circumcision performed by a mohel ("circumciser"), on the eighth day of the child's life unless health reasons force a delay, in the presence of family and friends, followed by a celebratory meal.

Christina and Jordan held the bris ceremony at their Beverly Hills home Sunday, January 20 with more than a dozen family and friends attended the gathering.

The Sunday ceremony, according to reports, also formalized the baby boy's name. Max's middle name is Liron which means "my song" in Hebrew.

Christina gave birth to Max at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California on January 12, 2008. She was raised as a Catholic, but has been learning about Judaism since her 2005 marriage to music executive Jordan.
