Re: Mikveh Music and Svigals "Fidl" band and circumcision

Tradition says that Abraham had the first circumcision, and was
recovering from same when he offered hospitality to the angel
who came to tell him that unto him and Sara would be born a son.

But, let's move the discussion of circumcision to a more appropriate
forum, if that's okay.

A copy of the poem that Felder recited is available in the first
issue of the otherwise (except for the cover) lackluster first 
issue of a California, nominally Jewish literary review called
"Davka," back in 1995 or so.
