When the baby boy is brought into the room, the guests say "Baruch Haba-ah," welcome! The Mohel then quotes a number of passages from the Torah in regards to the significance of the ceremony.
The Kvatter places the baby in the arms of the honored man who place the baby gently on the chair of Eliyahu Hanavi, or the chair of Elijah the prophet, and at that time the Mohel recites passages relating to Eliyahu Hanavi and his significance to the bris ceremony.
Following this, the baby is picked up from the chair of Eliyahu and presented to the father of the baby, who then hands his son over to the Sandek, the man who holds the baby during the performance of the Brit Milah ritual.
The father, who's responsibility is to bring his baby into the covenant of Abraha, appoints the Mohel as his agent to perform the Brit Milah on his son.

and six people recite special blessings
for the family and honorees of the Brit
