Jews Against Circumcision

[Note added 29.9.16: Sadly, the ‘Jews Against Circumcision’ website to which we linked in this post was taken down in the autumn of 2016. So we invite you to read their excellent leaflet Brit Shalom: A Peaceful Alternative.

Brit shalom is a naming ceremony for newborn Jewish boys. It’s an alternative to Brit milah, which involves genital mutilation.]

Doubtless we’ll be hearing the lie that we’re an anti-Semitic party in the days preceding the Golders Green protest, despite the fact we’re not. Do those last five words need expressing? Probably, sadly. It seems as good a time as any to link to the website Jews Against Circumcision. The start of the home page:

We are a group of educated and enlightened Jews who realize that the barbaric, primitive, torturous, and mutilating practice of circumcision has no place in modern Judaism.

Rabbi Moses Maimonides himself acknowledged that circumcision is done to desensitize the penis and curb masturbation.

Jews are some of the smartest people in the world. We are 1/3rd of 1% of the population, yet we hold 33% of Nobel prizes. We are smart enough to understand that mutilating a little boys’ penis is not an acceptable practice in modern times.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
