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!

This is Houston, We Have a Problem...

Heading to Houston, TX, for a bris this morning, because last week I got a call from a family looking for a specific style from the mohel they sought to hire.

Can't take full credit - I did get a referral. But while a simple search for mohel in Houston did net a few results, including one who was featured as one of :"America's Top Mohels" (JTA 2014, in one of the classic reasons why "top" anything lists are kinda silly) I can see that the variety of options is not like what people can find in Florida, where I live, or in New York.*

Of course, many people just call the local mohel when they need to have a bris. In some towns there is one mohel, and he is beloved by everyone, or he somehow works for everyone.

When that is not the case, I am happy to make the trip. After all, "Have knife... will travel!"

*I found out that this mohel had to leave town for very crazy reasons. Thank God he is OK, but his departure left a void in the Houston mohel scene.
