In the Russian Orthodox Church, do they do circumcision or not?
What’s the proper way in the russian orthodox church?
Eastern Orthodox in general do not circumcise as a religious practice. It was left behind with many other Jewish practices in the very first years of Christianity.
Baptism has taken the place of circumcision as entrance into the family of God.
Circumcision for other reasons, such as medical necessity, is not prohibited.
