Profoundly conscious that the precept of Bris Milah, or ritual circumcision, has been a central tent of the Jewish faith from the nascence of the Jewish religion;
Recalling that since the days of our patriarch, Abraham, the practice of Bris Milah has constituted a sacred and immutable covenant between the Jewish people and the Creator;
Mindful that the sanctity of life is a peremptory norm of Jewish life and the body of halachah, being the system of ethic-legal principles, rules, practices and usages which governs every aspect of its conduct;
Reaffirming that the practice of Bris Milah takes place within the framework of the peremptory Jewish norm of the sanctity of life;
Realizing that this requires the exercise of extreme caution in matters relating to or impinging upon the health and well-being of infants upon whom Bris Milah is performed;
Noting with pride that these principles have been unequivocally endorsed by leading halachic authorities through the ages;
Desiring to make a positive contribution to the implementation of these principles, by following both the letter and the spirit of the law.
1.To create, disseminate, and administer proper standards for the practice of Bris Milah in accordance with sound medical principles, based on the finest, current scientific and medical knowledge.
2. To this end, to identify and consult with the most outstanding scientific and medical experts in all relevant fields.
3. To implement all of this under the strict guidance and control of a rabbinic board, comprising of halachic authorities of the highest caliber.
