Ever since Traveling Mohel was launched, this mohel has had the privilege to travel for many brisses.
In this last month alone (April-May 2010), aside from local brisses in between flights, I have averaged more than one bris a week traveling by air.
Many mohels have observed that we never know more than a week in advance where our next jobs will be due to the nature of the business (you are called right when the baby is born and the bris is on the baby's eighth day, which is a week later).
This makes arranging travel a bit of a challenge, but in cases where there is no local mohel, what else can you do?
The steps have been outlined in other postings. Call me ASAP. If baby is healthy and signs are good, we'll book the most economical flight possible and give enough time so your baby is well cared for.
I feel very strongly about checking the baby after the bris. There is usually no need for me to see the baby beyond one time after the bris, and I make sure to book flights in such a way that I am around for a few hours after the bris in case there are any issues.
By the time I leave, the baby is healing nicely and just needs the requisite days for the circumcision to complete healing on its own.
Email email@example.com or call 516 850 9694 (cell).
Looking forward to serving your bris needs.
