Pidyon Ha-ben, or Pidyon Ha-bonin is a Jewish ceremony in which the father redeems his wifes firstborn son by offering to a cohen (a male Jew descended from the first priest, Aaron) the equivalent of five silver shekels (ancient coins). The ceremony, which normally takes place 30 days after the child’s birth, dates from Old Testament times.
