The best bris invite ever was just sent out to a select group of media professionals by Rubenstein PR (not Howard's company, Richard's). With the subject line "High Profile Bris on Sunday — You're Invited," it beckons us to watch a mohel circumcise the infant son of Zina Sapir and Rotem Rosen, who are apparently real-estate magnates. Zina is the daughter of Trump Soho investor Tamir Sapir. Rotem is the "right hand man" of Putin pal and real-estate magnate Lev Leviev. Below, in all its glory, is the press release/intimate invitation. You may have to read it twice to fully appreciate it:

Zina Sapir, daughter of real estate mogul Tamir Sapir and her husband real estate mogul Rotem Rosen, CEO of Africa Israel USA welcomed a baby boy last week. The bris is scheduled Sunday, June 1st at the grave of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, a prominent Hasidic rabbi who was the seventh and last Rebbe (spiritual leader) of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. Real estate and diamonds magnate Lev Leviev, the biggest contributor to Chabad in the world, personally arranged for the bris to take place at the grave site, which is considered a huge honor. Rotem Rosen, Lev Leviev’s right hand man, is very grateful as the grave is believed to be a holy site where millions of people come from all over the world to receive inspiration and blessing from the Rebbe.


Tamir and Rotem were married at Mar-A-Lago, with performances by the Pussycat Dolls. So you can imagine the invite list for this particular penis-chopping.

The guest list for the bris on Sunday reads like a who’s who in real estate with such names as Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, Joe Monahan, Joseph Chetrit, Steve Witkoff, Robert K. Futterman, Meir Tepper, Giuseppe Cipriani, Andre Balazs, and Amy Sacco all expected to attend.



The Sapir-Rosen offspring already owns more than half of New York City as Africa-Israel owns half of the Upper West Side landmark the Apthorp; the New York Times Building, the Clock Tower on Madison Avenue, much of the land around Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal; and massive downtown holdings including Downtown by Philippe Starck. The Sapir Organization owns some of New York's largest commercial buildings and developing such high profile buildings as Trump SoHo and the William Beaver House among many others.



Zina and Rotem just recently tied the knot on December 20, 2007 at Trump’s Mar-A-Largo retreat in Florida in front of 600 guests and included performances by Lionel Ritchie and the Pussycat Dolls.

We got lost somewhere between Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and Amy Sacco. Regardless, we're totally going.
