Brooklyn Bris & Baby Naming Venues

What to do when everyone wants to meet the new baby...but everyone can't fit in your house.

Never fear—Kveller has compiled a brief list of great spaces for you. (Now assign some well-meaning relative to check availability—you’re busy enough with that new baby!)
