Statement from Senator Simcha Felder Supporting Mayor de Blasio’s Metzitzah B’peh Decision


simchafelder“Baruch Hashem, the battle I began years ago when I was in the city council against the Bloomberg Administration’s edict prohibiting Metzitzah B’peh has finally been won.

“The Bloomberg Administration acted with such chutzpah, and willfully violated our religious freedom.

“Mayor de Blasio promised, during his campaign, to correct this appalling violation. As a result of ongoing discussions, concluding with today’s meeting, he is making sure that everyone, regardless of their beliefs, can practice their religion without fear of government interference. I am very thankful to the mayor.”
