Ethiopian Baby Dies
During Brit Milah

Jerusalem (JTA) - Israel's
Health Ministry sent an
urgent. warning to all new
immigrants from Ethiopia
that ritual circumcisions
must be performed only by a
qualified, medically trained
mohel.
The message, broadcast in
Amharic, the language of E-
thiopian Jews, followed the
death of an 11-week-old in-
fant at a Nahariya hospital
after his father tried to cir-
cumcise him with a razor
blade at the Shavei Zion ab-
sorption center.
The family was among
more than 14,000 Ethiopian
I Jews airlifted to Israel in
Operation Solomon on May -
24 and 25.
Their tragedy spotlighted
the cultural differences bet-
ween Ethiopian Jewry's
relatively primitive society
and the advanced Western
environment of Israel, to
which they were exposed lit-
erally overnight.
It is reported to be a tradi-
tion among many Ethiopian
Jews to follow the strict
biblical injunction that boys
be circumcised by their

fathers. Now the Health
Ministry is trying to get the
message across that the
ritual is done by a licensed
professional on behalf of the
father.
The Ethiopians, most of
whom are religious obser-
vant Jews, are being assured
that this standard practice
in Israel and most Jewish
communities around the
world is in strict accordance
with rabbinical teaching.
The bereaved father, Sahli
Halonung, 38, only meant
well when he decided to per-
form the brit milah on his
only son, born in Ethiopia
just 45 days earlier.
According to Jewish
custom, the ritual is per-
formed on the eighth day
after birth.
But the tumult of leaving
for and arriving in Israel
caused Sahli to postpone the
circumcision until he and his
wife were settled in Shavei
Zion.
He removed the foreskin.
But the child hemorrhaged,
and when he was finally
brought to the hospital, it
was too late to save him.
