IN SUPPORT OF CIRCUMCISION
Sometimes the discussion, "to circumcise or not to circumcise" becomes quite heated. As Jews, we circumcise our infant males because of the commandment first made by God to Abraham our patriarch and continuing in a chain of tradition to the current generation.
Still, the medical benefits of circumcision are significant and continue to be discussed and debated. Hazzan Glantz keeps up on articles and reports regarding all things medical related to his field. He regularly discusses and consults with local pediatricians and urologists and is permitted to perform circumcisions in most local hospitals when necessary.
