Birth and Circumcision
From “Commandment and Heart”

Rabbi Elimelech Bar Shaul

Man has two births:

One – by force and one – by thought;

One – by others and one – by himself

First – labour pains

Second – blessed by the pangs of creation

First – an event of its time

Second – continues all the days of man’s life

First – mainly the birth of the body

Second – in entirety the birth of the soul

First – he comes out of his mother’s womb into the air of the world

Second – his being is revealed
