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!

North Orlando, FL

Driving to Orlando for a bris is not the "biggest" deal - for me it's less than a three hour drive. But I guess it qualifies for "travelingmohel."

I blogged about the very flattering story that brought me to this family on my main mohel website, so I'm just sharing the link and the photos I posted on Facebook here.

Durham, NC - Days Before Pesach

The call came on Tuesday, "Are you available next Tuesday to come to Durham?"

Wow! What brings you to Durham?

"Medical school."

All the information I got aligned - turns out I know the new mom's family from my days living in Queens.

One never knows what demeanor first time parents will have when facing their son's bris. But this special duo were incredibly chilled out, patient and lovely. As were their respective parents and the baby's great (or shall we say 'awesome') grandma who flew in for the bris as well.

Days like this are quite unique because my traveling is solely for the family. I was part of the family for the better part of the day, and felt part of their simcha in a manner above and beyond the normal and more typical experience.

Their "Shul" is an orthodox minyan housed in a Conservative Shul. I met the rabbi who was present at the Chapel Hill bris of three years ago - he is from Chapel Hill, not in this Durham community. Yet another reminder of the smaller side of the Jewish community here.

Some pictures.
