circumcision today
Circumcision is a religious or cultural ritual for many Jewish and Muslim families and certain indigenous tribes in Africa and Australia. Circumcision can also be a family tradition, personal hygiene, or preventative health care.

Circumcision according to the Bible:
In Judaism, circumcision is separated from the sexual sphere: it means adhering to the Abrahamic covenant. In Hebrew it is called vertĂ­ millâ, “the covenant of circumcision.” All circumcision is essentially a renunciation of the totality and the opening to the Other, to the total Other, to the Lord God.
