In "The Foreskin Flap" [March 10] Jeffrey Felshman comments that Moses did not "circumcise his son." But he did not discuss the result of Moses' omission: God was ready to kill him!

As revealed in Exodus chapter four, Tzipora, Moses' wife, circumcised their son--whether it was Gershom or Eliezer is open to debate--and this action saved Moses' life.
