I am confused about the simchat bat, or baby naming ceremony for girls. When did it begin? Do Reform, Conservative and/or Orthodox Jews place the same importance on the ceremony as is given to a bris, or ritual circumcision? How is patrilineal descent affected by the male child or female child not having this rite of passage? Who or what determines what actions allow a child to be called Jewish through patrilineal descent?
