"My children, they were so pure. They all had faces of angels. Hashem (God) know how much I loved them," Gabriel said. "I want to ask my children's forgiveness. I did my best and my wife did her best. Please, everybody, love your child, love your children, love other's children. That's all that counts. Understand them, don't negate them." more >>

The mother of a 4-year-old boy has sought refuge in a women's shelter in Florida after being ordered by his father to have the boy circumcised.
Dennis Nebus approached the court in Palm Beach County to order his son, Chase, to undergo circumcision, stating that he and Chase's mother, Heather Hironimus, had agreed to the medical procedure but she changed her mind. Nebus argued in court that Chase was having issues urinating and suffered from a condition called phimosis, which prevents retraction of the foreskin; Hionimus retaliated and said that Chase has no physical problems.
