Two infants in the last three months in New York City's ultra-Orthodox Jewish
community have been infected with herpes following a ritual circumcision,
according to the health department. The boys were not identified.
In the most controversial part of this version of the Jewish ritual, known as
metzitzah b'peh, the practitioner, or mohel, places his mouth around the baby's
penis to suck the blood to "cleanse" the wound.
