Rabi Yehudah And Antoninus


Tales-of-The-Midrash-logo

Rabi Shimon remained silent but his wife rushed forward and said, “O Caesar, here is the child. I ask you to inspect him before you pass judgment on us.”

The Emperor took the child in his hands and looked at him.

“What is this?” he exclaimed. “This child is not circumcised! Is this a joke?”

The Romans who had accompanied the group were thunderstruck. How was it possible?

“The governor will hear from me,” the Emperor roared, ”You Jews may leave and return to your homeland.”

Once again the family stopped off at the hotel, this time to return the babies to their rightful mothers. They exchanged lasting vows of friendship and the friendship passed over to the two young children.

When the Roman baby, Antonius, grew up and assume the throne he never forgot his mother’s friend and son.

  3. Jews have a proud history of being on the front lines of every fight for equality, justice, and human rights. This generation of Jews needs to stop and ask themselves if they want to continue that estimable legacy or abandon it; to continue to evolve or to regress. Just as in the past, devout Jews have given up the practices of owning slaves, murdering those who work on the Sabbath, murdering adulterers, and murdering rebellious children, it is time for Jews to cease the sexual mutilation of baby boys. Such human sacrifice to an angry God is passé. Forced sexual mutilation is a human rights issue and it is time for modern Jews to continue to lead civilization away from cruelty and darkness, not into it.
