Circumcision violates several Jewish laws and beliefs, including the law that the human body must not be marked or cut (Lev 19: 28) and prohibitions against assaulting or harming another person (Exod 21: 18-27). Many Jews are now choosing not to circumcise their sons. We hope others follow their example.
