Metzitzah B’peh: Ancient, Cruel, Disgusting, NOT SACRED!

“…200 ultra-Orthodox rabbis have signed onto a Proclamation…saying that the Health Department "printed and spread lies . . . in order to justify their evil decree." Rabbi David Niederman, executive director of the United Jewish Organization of Williamsburg, said that mohels will not comply with the regulation if it is approved.  He said: "For the government to force a rabbi who’s practicing a religious act to tell his congregants it’s dangerous is totally unacceptable. You’re forcing the mohel and the parent to sign a piece of paper that contradicts their religious convictions."
