Abstract:

Many Jews accept without question the ritual circumcision of their sons. In this disturbing and powerful film, made by a Jewish journalist, director and concerned parent, the realities of the procedure and its possible after effects are revealed. Circumcision is the only infant operation that can be conducted anywhere by any method by non-medical personnel. It is also the only surgical procedure to be regularly carried out without anesthetic, in the belief that newborns do not feel pain. In the past it was thought to promote cleanliness and good health, preventing such disorders as penile cancer, cervical cancer and urinary tract infections. However, the scientific bases for all these claims have now been discredited. The core of the film is the story of one eight-day-old boy and his circumcision which goes horribly wrong. This film elicited an unprecedented response when it was broadcast in Britain to overwhelmingly positive reviews. This is clearly an issue that Jews cannot ignore.
