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!

1 Bris - No, Make that Two

I came into New York Sunday night for a bris I was going to do Monday morning.

When I arrived and turned my phone back on, I had a message that said, "Hi. We had a baby and want to talk to you about a bris in NY."

I called, only to find out the baby was over a month old - he had been born premature - and had just come home from the hospital. Owing to a not-so-clear Rabbinic rule about the postponement of a bris, the father was under the assumption that the bris would take place the following week.

However, after asking a few questions and finding out the full story, it became clear that the delay period was not necessary and that the bris could take place right away.

So instead of having one bris on Monday, I ended up serving as mohel twice!

I love when things align that way...
