That I, who attend synagogue once a year and sneak out before the end, put myself through “such a wringer” over circumcision shows how strongly the flames of the Maccabees still burn. Circumcision has long been a linchpin of Jewish selfhood, a symbol of the pact between Jews, their God, their traditions and their ancestors. In the 21st century, people like me find ourselves in a strange position: we are as proud of Jewish survival as we are of our decision to reject the backwardness and brutality of the past.
