Circumcised of the Heart or Flesh?

Lech Lecha (לך לך) “Go forth”

TORAH : GENESIS 12:1-17:27

In this Torah Portion, we read that the sign of the Covenant between Avraham and his descendants is a physical circumcision.  That is: All male children in his lineage would be required to be physically circumcised. This is part of an eternal blessing and covenant!   

Over history, physical descendants of Avraham have struggled over the circumcision of the heart. Meanwhile, spiritual descendants have struggled with the circumcision of the flesh.

In this portion, we will attempt to answer why YHVH made this a sign of the Covenant with Avraham. We will also address the question, “Are we supposed to circumcise today?”
