Yes, it has been Jewish tradition to circumsize babies. However, there are many Jewish parents around the world who have decided not to circumcize their boys. There are even Jews in Israel who would rather not circumcize their son. There is even an organization that has formed that publicly opposes circumcisions.
It depends on the family and whether they want to participate in that ritual. Some sects are strict about that custom while others are more lenient. There are many men who are not Jewish that remain uncircumcised.
I grew up Jewish and can tell you that reform Jews do not ritually circumcise, though they may choose to like any other culture or religion. Orthodox Jews do circumcise 8 days after the birth of a son representing the covenant with God and the nation of Israel in a ceremony known as brit milah.
