  Broadcast in Religion

Call in to speak with the host

"We may deliver a woman on the Sabbath, summon a midwife for her from place to place, desecrate the Sabbath on her account, and tie up the naval string.  R. Jose said: one may cut it too.  And all the requirements of circumcism may be done on the Sabbath."

In this episode, we will explore some fascinating similarities between cutting the umblical cord and cutting the foreskin.  In the process, we will learn an important life lesson.
