    The NOCIRC of Michigan web site has an excellent section For Jewish Parents.
    It was created by Norm Cohen, Dorector of NOCIRC of Michigan.
    Norm Cohen was born and raised in an Orthodox Jewish family. His father was an Orthodox rabbi, yet he supports intactivism and restoring.

    I declared myself finished restoring with 3/4 erect coverage (CI-8.5) in 2005. I primarily used T-tape, strapping up and around my waist.
    I've participated in NORM meetings in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle (RECAP), and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

    Every doubt, reservation, or concern I had about my restoration was resolved by achieving additional foreskin LENGTH.....So just KOT !

      Who edited the topic title of this thread and why? I'm quite certain the original title was, "Looking for resources and videos for my sister," but now it says, "Looking for resources and videos for my Jewish sister." I'm not especially upset by the edit and I respect the rights of the admins to run this forum as they see fit, but I would greatly appreciate an open explanation when something like a topic title is unilaterally changed.

      Thanks for this! I doubt my sister will see it, but I'll keep it among my list of resources.

        I agree! I will recommend that too. I came across about it while browsing.

          Writing an update to this topic has been on my to-do list for a long time. Obviously, she's had her baby by now (gave birth back in February, actually).

          The big news is... she had a girl.

          Welp, I'll take that as a victory for intact genitals. Apparently you can't trust ultrasounds in the first two months of pregnancy. There's not much else to say. Since she had her baby, my relationship with her has thawed significantly, which is a relief. On the other hand, she knows what may be my darkest secret and I think it continues to hang silently between us. I also continue to worry that she'll eventually try for another kid and the ultrasound will confirm that it's going to be a boy. If that is the case, my hope is that I can approach the subject again. I think I'll get yet more forceful pushback against my advice, but I also plan on being more focused in my arguments. In my mind, my script runs, "Is it your body and your choice? Is it your daughter's body and your daughter's choice? Is it my body and my choice? Is it your son's body and your son's choice?" I'd like her to know that this isn't about her son looking a certain way or some desire on my part to impose my will on her, but rather a simple matter of bodily autonomy that everyone should be able to agree on.

          Anyway, I kind of expect that she's not going to try for another kid, at least not for a while longer. Thanks for the help, everyone! I'm not sure whether to notch this one as a tie or a win, but either way, I'll take it!

            You did what you could. You are not in control of your sister or her husband. All you can do is give them your thoughts, feelings, and information.

            However, if she at some point in the future is willing to engage again, the fundamental problem seems to be that they feel they "own" there child in some way and can do whatever they want. If they could recognize the human rights issue at the core of this, then you may have some impact. Here are a few resources in addition to the ones already provided:

            Of course, since religion is mixed into this discussion, logic and secular rights may only take you so far. In the end, your nephew may have his foreskin amputated. But you can be there for him when he is old enough to make his own decisions, and let him know about restoration.
