1) Religion. Jews get circumsized because Abraham, the father of Judaism, made a covenant with God that was sealed by him circumsizing himself. Another part of the covenant was that his decendants would have to do it too to recognize the covenant. In other words, you're not a real Jewish person until you are circumsized.
2) Health. Parents sometimes get their children circumsized at birth to avoid infection and other problems. It is recomended by alot of doctors. Also, if you do get penal infection, alot of the time the cure involves getting circumsized.
By the way, circumsision does not make your dick any shorter, and about half of all the men in the world are circumsized.
