(JTA) — Mazel tov to Jason Biggs and his wife Jenny Mollen on the birth–and apparent circumcision–of their son Sid. On Tuesday Mollen posted shots to Instagram that seem to have been taken on or around the time of their newborn’s bris. “Today was not a good day to be Sid’s penis,” read one caption that bore the hash tags #babybiggs and #circumcision, while another shot showed Biggs and Mollen wrapped in a talit.

The news probably seems entirely unsurprising. This is Larry Bloom we’re talking about, after all–of course his kid would get snipped. But allow us to remind you that although Biggs has brought many a Jewey character to life, he is actually Roman Catholic. (Shocks every time–we know.)

While Mollen’s faith is currently unconfirmed, we’re banking on the fact that she’s a tribe member–especially since this isn’t the first Jewish rite of passage she’s shared on social media. In January Mollen posted shots of the couple’s dog Teet’s “bark mitzvah.” It’s all there on Instagram, but the Daily Mail summed it up quite nicely, so sit back and enjoy shots of yarmulke-clad pooch lighting a candle and munching on challah, plus fun puns like “Fur goodness sake!”
