Self Mutilation, defeated

The destruction of the contract with god; the temple;
twice was a defeat for Judaism.
They had to resort to circumcision as a terrible contract with god.
The self-mutilation of a religious tribe.
Superstition to enforce a sense of belonging to a group.
                  
Yet it remains a daily reminder of the defeat of Judaism.
Judaism destroyed and re imagined.
Survival, mutilated but not a victory.
