Ritual Circumcisionist's Kit 1950's 

The ritual use of tools is epitomized in this circumcision kit. These traditional gripping and cutting instruments are employed to remove the foreskin from the penis of and eight-day old Jewish boy. Use of the kit by the mohel, or circumcisionist's follows strict procedures that include prayers and blessings. Circumcision is a religious rite among Muslims as well, and a common medical procedure. .
