What is more according to a rabbi friend , to convert to Judaism means you must shun and be seen to shun your former family and friends. The day of conversion is then recognized as your day of birth by the congregation.


And yet many Jews - even in Israel - no longer circumcise their boys.
And some Muslims no longer circumcise their boys, and often do not circumcise their daughters!

Odd that when Jews are mentioned we quickly see the word "circumcise" pop up but not when Muslims are mentioned, for example, this long thread. Despite the fact that the number of circumcised Muslims in this world are many hundred times the number of circumcised Jews.

About "according to a rabbi friend , to convert to Judaism means you must shun and be seen to shun your former family and friends." I think he was pulling your leg; you should ask him where this is defined by the Amora'im who produced the Talmud.
