Circumcision Practises in some culture At the moment I am still downloading and still yet to listen to this audio lecture and I am sure of it this is gonna be a great one. Of what I have been raised many cultures practise circumcision for some reason mostly out of hygiene. And for some a religious requirement or something like that. As what I understood in the Tanakh it is a definite part of returning to G-D. Just months ago I read an article that somewhere in the U.S.A. there is a law that is to be passed on banning this practise completely. Is there truth in this?. That would be a shame if it is true.

Question If Jewish women do not need a circumcision because they are already more spiritual than men, what is it that separates them from non-jewsih women or are all women more spiritual, Jewish or not? Reply

Berith-Milah. Ahhhh......To all the people reading this comment. As I was reading the comment of this anonymous posting from Israel; I do place myself in the same situation that this brothers are going through. I myself feel; incomplete, kind of lost i might add. The feeling of not been here; not there. I am a Jew, but I'm not since i never got a brith (bris) nor a Bar-Mitzvah. This covenants are so meaningful to me as a Jew, and at my age of 58 years; it is embarrassing to me about this subject; particularly when, in the few times that I have immerse my body in the mikvah; with the intention of cleansing -it from my worldly sins. I could feel the eyes of the men; looking at me, and all i could do was to look down, and feel very uncomfortable about it, an overwhelming feeling invaded my soul, a feeling of no belonging or been worthy of this blessing. I do hope that one day in the near future; I will be able to look back, and be so thankful to G--d for the blessings he has giving me to feel comple. Reply

My parents didn't give myself or brothers a bris. I had one a few years ago and am learning here to help my brothers.

Great lecture and though online, felt interactive. Reply

Mendel Kaplan´s talk on circumcision What a fascinating talk! Reply

Circumcision is the first commandment given by G-d to Abraham, the first Jew, and is central to Judaism.
