Jewish Circumcision Mohel Professional Qualifications
I have been a Certified Mohel since 2007 and have performed more than fifteen hundred circumcisions around the world - including on four of my own sons.
I travel extensively across the Pacific Midwest performing Jewish circumcisions as a mohel for families from Poulsbo Wa, to Elizabeth Co, from Anchorage Al, to El Paso, New Mexico. I am also available to travel to additional locations in the United States should a family request my services.
I trained in the art of Jewish circumcision mohel under Rabbi Yehuda Gihat - one of the most senior and experienced Mohels (Circumcision experts) in Jerusalem.
I employ exclusively traditional methods and use a shield (also called a guard). My chosen method is considered to be the fastest, as well as the most gentle on the child. I adhere to the highest possible standards of hygiene, work within a controlled and clean environment and always sterilize my tools with an autoclave - a trusted and reliable method of ensuring sterility.
I believe in the benefits of a rabbi performing a circumcision in the comfort, warmth and quiet of the baby’s own home, surrounded by his loved ones and familiar objects. I take the time to get to know you and your baby prior to the procedure so I can offer you a warm, meaningful and reassuring service.
