56Re: [JewishUC] Circumcision
- Mar 5, 2005I understand your dilemma. I felt like that with my
youngest son. I spoke with my Rabbi and he only
managed to say one thing that convinced me. If he (the
baby) plans on being Jewish he'll need to have it
done, and it's less involved to do it as a baby rather
than wait until adulthood (anethesia, longer
recovery...). I wanted to save my son having to go
through that. So we decided to go ahead.
I will tell you that it was in no way a joyous
occasion for us. Both my husband and myself were sick
and cried for days. But we still stand by our
decision. And we rejoiced mightly when our last baby
was a girl.
