The Kid-Dish: Alicia Silverstone Explains Why She Nixed The Bris

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.alicia-silverstone

-In her new book, “The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning,” Alicia Silverstone explains why she decided against circumcizing her son, Bear. The anti-circumsion site Beyond the Bris offers this quote:

“I was raised Jewish, so the second my parents found out that they had a male grandchild, they wanted to know when we’d be having a bris (the Jewish circumcision ceremony traditionally performed 8 days after a baby is born),” she writes. “When I said we weren’t having one, my dad got a bit worked up. But my thinking was: If little boys were supposed to have their penises ‘fixed,’ did that mean we were saying that God made the body imperfect?”

While the rest of the book offers some questionable medical advice, Silverstone’s view on circumcision is becoming increasingly widespread among Jewish families.  (JTA) Read the rest of this entry →
