It is my understanding that a B’rit Milah is not what makes a person Jewish. One is considered Jewish if born to a Jewish mother or father (Reform and Reconstructionist thinking) or has converted to Judaism. There are many Jews by Choice who are already circumcised and others who cannot undergo a circumcision for psychological and other valid reasons. Being a Jew involves more than whether one does or doesn’t have a foreskin. Incidentally – there are Jewish families who don’t circumcise their sons but have other baby naming and covenantal ceremonies in the synagogue.
