Councilman Greenfield’s Statement on Metzizah B’Peh Agreement


david-greenfield“I am thrilled that the de Blasio administration has annulled New York City’s unconstitutional regulations on bris milah – a 3,700 year religious obligation of circumcision. Separation of church and state is a two-way street.

“It is significant that the administration is agreeing to do away with ineffective measures put in place by Mayor Bloomberg, and instead embracing an informational campaign that has proven effective in other parts of the country. This is a big win not just for our community but for every New Yorker who values the protections granted by our constitution.”
