The Meal of the Brit Milah
==The Meal of the Brit Milah==
# It is a proper practice to make a meal on the day of a Brit Milah and it is considered a Seudat Mitzvah. <Ref>Pirkei DRabbi Eliezer ch. 29, Shulchan Aruch YD 265:12, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Kitzur 163:8. See Gemara [[Shabbat]] 130a</ref>
# The practice is not to invite people to this meal because there is an issue for someone who was invited to a meal of Brit Milah and didn't attend.<Ref>Rav Mordechai Eliyahu's comment on Shulchan Aruch Kitzur 163:8, Bayit HaYehudah vol. 10 pg. 182, see also [http://www.yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/750891/Rabbi_Aryeh_Lebowitz/Ten_Minute_Halacha_-_Inviting_People_to_a_Bris Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz] </ref>
# Ideally the meal should have meat but one fulfills the minhag even with chicken or fish.<ref>Yalkut Yosef Sova Semachot 2:11:3 based on Taamei Haminhagim writes that the meal should have meat initially but if that's not possible it could have chicken or fish. Rabbenu Bechay Beresheet 21:8 writes that the minhag to have a seuda after a Brit Milah is based on the party Avraham made for Yitzchak and the midrash writes that the party was for fact he was able to give Yitzchak a Milah. </ref>
