The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has issued a new brochure on metzitzah b'peh (MBP), the dangerous direct mouth-to-bleeding-penis sucking done primarily by haredi mohels after removing the baby's foreskin. MBP transmits disease to babies, including Herpes Simplex 1, which can kill or maim them. But haredi rabbis refuse to stop MBP, even though some important haredi rabbis in previous generations banned it, and the city and state refuse to ban it, supposedly because they fear it will just continue to be done underground. So instead of a ban, we have a brochure. Here it is, in both Yiddish and English.
