2 Cheshvan 5766

Status as a Jew

Rabbi Jonathan Blass

Although my mother is Jewish, I did not have a bris (my parents were not observant). Should I decline full participation in services such as receiving aliyot
until I have a bris milah?

The question should be a theoretical one (it is discussed in Tzitz Eliezer XI 9, Sridei Aish I 11 and Iggrot Moshe Orach Chayyim II 33) because you should not delay your brit milah for anything but serious medical reasons. It is time to rectify the wrong.

One personal question has been asked following this question.
