Circumcision Rebellion, Dubious Orthodox Libraries, Bagel Battle

In this week’s Reporters Roundtable podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward Fellow Seth Berkman to discuss why Orthodox mohels are refusing to present consent forms to parents before performing metzitzah b’peh — the controversial practice of suctioning blood following circumcision. Then, assistant managing editor Larry Cohler-Esses talks with Josh about the federal program that is providing thousands of dollars to dubious libraries run by Orthodox groups. And finally, food editor Devra Ferst drops by to discuss a recent call to save the New York City bagel.
