A celebration of circumcision. A picture from a different culture with different believes, different habits and different roots. Two options to chose from - to reject or to learn to understand. We lived two cultures next to each other for some time. And we chose to learn about the other culture, its habits and believes. We learned respect to each other. We did not agree with everything the other did or said. However we learned to respect each other. Each of us has this choice. To reject and create animosity, or to learn and bring understanding. Understanding is the best way to promote peace regardless of culture, religion or race. It is a chance for every inhabitant of the planet Earth.

A worthy contribution - this is an important ritual for many religions & cultures all around the world, and in this case something that is important within the Jewish faith. An image that's well within the spirit of this site, thanks for sharing.

Great text and I agree with it, the photo is certainly informative but the expression of delight on the face of the woman is hard to swallow even if the baby won't remember the event later on...
Interesting subject and I think, rather unique on TE, "TFS !"
