  1. Pro-circumcision Orthodox groups petitioned NYC health department against a new requirement that written parental consent be given before “mitzveh b’peh” is conducted.

    Can we please get this right? It is “m’tzitzeh bpeh.” Not Mitzveh – this is an error that implies that m’tzitzeh b’peh is a commandment; it is not, it is a chumrah that has been added to the commandment of circumcision.

  2. “Metzitzah b’feh”, actually. (In more ways than one.)

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
