Lech Lecha – Paul Nison

by on November 09, 2012

This is the 3rd reading of this Torah Cycle, Noah, Genesis 12:1-17:27

I will make of you a great nation, I will bless you, and I will make your name great; and you are to be a blessing. Don’t be afraid. I am your protector, your reward will be very great. Walk in my presence and be pure-hearted.

This is pretty much the message Our Creator spoke to Abraham in this week’s Torah reading.

    Hi 🙂 I have a quick question. I believe in honoring the circumcision covenant and I have had all my boys circumcised. However, the option to do so is provided at the hospital and all of my sons were circumcised in the hospital a few days after birth. I heard you mention that it should not be done before the 8th day or something like that? Does that mean it was pointless to have circumcised my sons?…that my boys did not honor the covenant? I am confused as to why it is ok to circumcise long after birth (like in Ishmael’s case of being 13) but not ok to do so sooner than 8 days as I just mentioned. Can you please explain that to me? Thank you 🙂
