Proposed Santa Monica Circumcision Ban Dropped

Hosted by

Circumcision goes back to Abraham in the Book of Genesis, and it's a requirement of Jewish law. In the US, between 30- and 50 percent of male infants are circumcised. But in San Francisco, 12,000 voters signed up to get a circumcision ban on the November ballot. In Santa Monica, a similar effort has been dropped. Jonah Lowenfeld writes for the Jewish Journal.
