Questioning Circumcision Is Common Among Young Jews In America

“Young Jewish parents in the USA are bucking historical trends on this questionable surgery. Articles about or mentioning Jewish opposition to circumcision have appeared recently in a variety of Jewish papers, websites, and blogs including the Jewish Daily Forward, JewSchool, Jweekly,, Jewish Journal, Jewish Business News (Israel) and Ynet Jewish World.


Young Jewish parents are working with supportive Jewish clergy to create ritual alternatives.


Mark Reiss, MD., a Jewish doctor and influential intactivist manages a list of more than 130 Rabbis (plus many cantors and other Jewish leaders) all over the world (including the US, UK, and Israel), who officiate at Jewish covenant ceremonies without circumcision.”
