The main honors, in order of appearance are:
- Kvater and /or Kvaterin- couples or individuals who bring the baby into the room where the ceremony is taking place.
- Someone who places the baby on the Chair of Elijah and takes him from the Chair and hands him to the father who hands him to the Sandek.
- Seated Sandek- someone who holds the baby during the circumcision.
- Standing Sandek- someone who holds the baby during his naming.
I encourage parents to select honors in a thoughtful way.
