Today, the leadership of the Orthodox Union, the nation’s largest Orthodox Jewish umbrella organization, expressed their deep concern over the Swedish Centre Party’s vote to fight the nonmedical circumcision of boys.
Orthodox Union President Moishe Bane stated:
“The Swedish Centre Party’s decision to promote a ban on religious circumcision is synonymous with calling for the end of Jewish life in Sweden. Religious circumcision is a core Jewish obligation which has been practiced for over two millennia.
Orthodox Union Executive Vice President Allen Fagin stated:
“The Swedish Centre Party’s decision to promote a ban on religious circumcision would lead to the exodus of Jews from the country. We ask that they hear our concerns, understand the importance of this issue and respond accordingly.”
