As both a clinical Certified Mohel and Rabbi, I am committed to being open, to listening and to being present and accommodating to your desires and concerns for the ceremony.
I believe in a family centered ceremony that marks the miracle of life, the centrality of belonging and the power of tradition.
Through soulful song and embrace, I will guide your family in welcoming your son into the Jewish people.
I am a graduate of Columbia University and completed my extensive training, clinical work and certification at the London School of Circumcision, the premier Mohel training program in the world.
I specialized in neonatal circumcision and received the highest training in the most modern methods of aftercare and pain management. I was supervised and mentored by one of the leading experts in circumcision, Ephraim Josovic C.M.
In addition to my clinical training at LSC, I studied ritual circumcision directly under Rabbi Dayan Mordechai Azran C.M., with a special focus on neonatal anatomy, at the Moresheth Avoth Academy in Beit Shemesh Israel. I hold an additional certification through the Chief Rabbinate in Beit Shemesh.
I promise you and your family to treat your son with respect, dignity and love. I am honored to hold the responsibility to perform the bris, and understand the gravity of the decision to put him in my hands for this important milestone. I am committed to his safety and to your comfort with the procedure and the ceremony.
