                                  Answer:
   
   Adult converts must also undergo some form of circumcision. In the
   Orthodox and Conservative movements, actual circumcision is required
   unless, of course, the convert is already circumcised (at which point
   a pinpricking is performed to draw blood, an inherent part of the
   act). In the Reform movement, circumcision for converts is recommended
   but not required.
