Why Choose a Mohel
Speed and Comfort
More Meaningful and Personalized Experience
No Vitamin K Shot
The Vitamin K shot is not required as I circumcise in-home around day 8 post-birth when the baby’s coagulation mechanism is fully functional.
In the hospital, the family does not meet the doctor or surgeon before the event. Before the circumcision by mohel, I meet or speak to every family I work with prior to the newborn circumcision in Chicago
In the hospital, the standard procedure is around 25 minutes, but it can often take a lot longer. With a circumcision by mohel, It's all over in under a minute! That’s it!
Midwives & Doulas
I want to introduce you to my gentle, home-based circumcision service - a faster, more caring alternative that many families will feel at peace with.
Planning a Jewish Bris
The Bris is that special ceremony where your precious son’s eternal connection to the Jewish people is sealed while he fulfills the Covenant G-d made with Abraham through a Jewish circumcision by mohel.
For All Faiths
A home circumcision could be a peaceful, meaningful experience for anyone. Having a circumcision by mohel can work towards the baby being cared for and held in its loving home environment.
The newborn circumcision in Chicago and surrounding areas has the baby nestled on a pillow, cradled in the loving arms of a familiar relative, unlike in a hospital Strapped to a board in an operating theatre.
When your son is circumcised in hospital, you usually don't know in advance who will carry out the procedure. In the hospital, a baby is strapped down naked to a board in preparation for the procedure. He will receive multiple shots causing him unnecessary discomfort. The circumcision in home is then carried out by an anonymous intern or doctor and usually the child must wear an uncomfortable ring around the penis for several days afterwards.
The circumcision by Mohel experience couldn't be more different!
Unlike in a hospital setting, where the procedure can take 25 minutes or more, the newborn circumcision by mohel experience is over in less than 2 minutes! During the procedure, the baby is placed on a comfortable pillow and has his loving parents and other family members close at hand. He is neither strapped down nor moved to a cold, sterile and unfamiliar environment. He remains in the familiar comfort of home throughout.
Areas that I Travel to Frequently
Hi and welcome!
I’m Rabbi Gadi Levy
During the eleven years (to date) that I’ve served as a Mohel, I’ve been blessed to have performed more than one thousand circumcisions in home for both Christian and Jewish families.
This large number in no way diminishes the awe I feel at each one.
Every family is unique and every baby is a gift from God.
I’m also a traditionally-trained Rabbi and the spiritual leader of a Jewish community in Portland, Oregon.
