Here I am in Houston, for the second time this year. (By that I mean, here I am behind the camera at the bris that took place last week)
When the baby's father first contacted me, his number one concern was that the proper amount of foreskin be removed - not more than necessary. (Maybe he read this)
Anyway, I assured him that as the author of this and this, he had nothing to worry about. He happened to have me stay in his son's pediatrician's house for the evening (we are very informal within the Jewish community!), and she and I discussed her own concerns for boys that she sees especially immediately post-bris. And even though I told her about this conversation, she still found my insistence on the use of a marker, and concern for how things look (and that the proper amount of skin remains afterwards) to be very refreshing. The doctor also examined the baby a few hours after the bris and was VERY PLEASED saying "You're going to be the mohel in this town..."
Amen, may it be so.
Anyway, the lovely family hosted the bris in Houston's latest Kosher attraction - a very wonderful steakhouse.
Here's the Facebook post of this event
