Question
I recently heard that a court someplace in Germany forbade all circumcision (I believe the case involved a Moslem). I heard the ruling is being appealed and may be overturned, but it got me wondering why Judaism teaches to circumcise a newborn boy on the eighth day. Thanks.

OS 251 To my continual joy and miraculous wonder, I am pregnant with our first child. Is there anything I should or can be doing during this exciting time to help prepare, spiritually, for the incredible job of parenthood & motherhood? Thank you for your consideration and for the weekly dose of humor and wisdom!

Question
I have a question for your "Ask the Rabbi" series. At a Jewish wedding the groom places the glass under his foot and smashes it into several pieces. What is the significance of this act? I have a friend who is soon to be married and he asked me this question.
