"The Ten Commandments" is one of my favorites too. Ya just can't beat Yul Brynner and Charlton Heston in the same movie!!<quoted text>
Circumcision's were always done for Jewish boys, not just in the 60's. They still are, as its a fullfillment of G-d command in Genesis.
I'm so sorry you were lied to - that's not right, but yeah, I could have told you they'd do it, as if you look at the passage, it also applies to "adopted" children that were not born of a Jewish mother. Adoption is effectively an "automatic" conversion for a baby and its cemented so to speak not only by the circumcision, but also by the naming. He would have had an offical naming as well. Do you know his Hebrew name and what the name means? If you dont, ask, its really interesting!
LOL Yeah. I know adult men who've converted and had to be circumsized, but it wasn't by a rabbi or mohel, it was in a hospital with LOTS of drugs LOL!!
<quoted text> Mazel Tov! <<grin>>
Yes, I watched many of them and really was impressed.
My FAVORITE to this day however remains The Ten Commandments with Charlton Heston. Every year, without fail, we watch it.
LOL And there's a scene in it where Moses comes down off the mountain after seeing G-d for the first time, and his hair is snow white.
Now his wife hasn't seen him in months, and what's the VERY first thing she says?
"Oh Moses - your hair"!
LOL Cracks me up EVERY time! LOVE that movie!
One time my sister and I were watching The Ten Commandments and talking about Charlton Heston. My daughter, who was about 3, walked into the room and asked who Charlton Heston was. We pointed him out on the and she asked; "How did Moses grow up to be Charlton Heston?" LOL
