“It is a sobering fact that in the public debate [about circumcision] we observed partly antisemitic and racist undertones.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Are there any circumstances under which a Brit Milah would not take place?

Brit Milah is never performed if the procedure could pose any danger to the child. The Mohel will often choose to postpone a circumcision even when faced with relatively minor conditions, very common in neo-natal’s, such as cases of mild jaundice.
