I don't see this as representing a Briss, because a Briss is the ritual circumcision of the male Jewish child, marking and honoring the covenant between g-d and the Jewish people. It's preformed by a Moyle ( these days, more often a Doctor) and the mother is not present. However, it seems to me to be very much a ritual between the Mother and child, and I wonder just who is the magician here--or is it that they each become a magician because of and through each other? it's a wonderful card, and to me seems to represent the aspect of the magician that is physical manifestation.
