Have Knife - Will Travel

Welcome to travelingmohel.com! If you are expecting a boy, or if your son has just been born, and you live in an area without a local mohel (or the local mohel is unavailable, or you are exploring other options), travelingmohel.com is the address for you.

I come highly recommended by happy parents, rabbis and physicians, and have developed the traveling for a bris down to a science so that you have the best experience possible from a traveling mohel, your baby is given the attention he needs and deserves, and we remain in constant contact until your baby is completely healed from his bris (circumcision).

I currently live in South Florida, making me an ideal candidate to fly anywhere in the Caribbean or the United States. I am open to flying just about anywhere in the world!

Bris in Jacksonville

Traveling mohel was in Jacksonville, FL for another bris last week.
This time in a private home.

I had a nice time chatting with the kosher caterer, the rabbi, the chazzan, and members of the family.

Baby is doing well. He has two older brothers looking after him, and I'm sure they'll show him the ropes soon enough.

Mazal tov!


Travels Are Up

I am a better traveler than a log-keeper on this website.

During the last couple of months I have flown to distant places in my home state of Florida (when it's more than a four hour drive each way, it's more sensible to fly), and back to NY.

Nothing exotic of late, but I receive emails from people in the Caribbean and other places in the US who are "just looking." Some follow through and some find someone else. Which is OK - it's a free country Republic.

Looking forward to joining your family...



Another Successful NY Bris

Yesterday was highlighted by a trip to NY for a bris for a family I know a very long time.
Their third boy equals my third bris for the family.

Every bris is an honor to perform. Knowing all the people, both parents, and all the grandparents (as well as baby's aunts and uncles) for between 25-30 years respectively makes it even more special.

Mazal tov!


Getting Around Florida

Being based in south Florida, most of the brisses I do are in the general area near where I live.

As a traveling mohel, flights take me (mostly) around the country and to Caribbean islands. But this past weekend I had two engagements in Central Florida.

I flew to Gainesville for this baby's bris.

 Here is a fantastic cloud I saw from the plane.

Touchdown in Gainesville was fun. (Not a very exciting video, but it's only 1 minute)

The airport is tiny, and there is no major taxiing time to the terminal because there aren't other planes coming in. There are four gates, and the area between gate and airport exit is nothing like at any large airport. Maybe 100 steps.

Going back was even better because there was one person on the security line: me.

On Sunday I drove to Orlando - but forgot to take photos. Ho hum. My kids gave me a "Harry potter" book on CD, so that kept me company in the 3.5 hour drive (each way!). That and the phone, of course.


Bris in North Carolina

Yesterday I had a full day trip to Raleigh, North Carolina.

The wonderful family that brought me there for their son's bris were truly hospitable (they call their home "Grand Central Station" - lots of people were coming in and out all day), and it was an honor to participate in their special occasion.

 Here's the bris setup.

Baby napping after bris.


Bris in Cayman Islands

I just got back from the Cayman Islands, where I was privileged to serve as mohel for a wonderfully sweet family. Having a little time for a run on the beach (the bris was in the family's home), I took this picture

The ocean is so calm and quiet, the sand so fine, and the water so clear. This isn't a stock photo - here is a video I took of the beach - the voice you hear is me, because a woman was passing by and didn't want to interrupt the "shot."

If I get photos from the bris, I will be sure to post them here or in mohelinsouthflorida.com or on Facebook


A Busy Week

Traveling Mohel makes the rounds. 

There is no dearth of mohels in NY. And yet, I have four brisses in NY over the course of this week (including a pair of twins!) 

I truly appreciate the level of trust you put in me.

And I hope I fill the role you are looking for to your satisfaction.

Flying a mohel in for your bris is not an easy decision to make, but those who have done so have been overwhelmingly pleased with the results. Which is gratifying to mohel as well as parents.

Be in touch! You will get the same 5-Star treatment you and your baby deserve.
