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!

Santiago, Dominican Republic

With beautiful timing, the baby was born the Tuesday before Yom Kippur, allowing for the bris to take place the day before Erev Sukkot. As luck would have it, that was really the only way this could have worked out, as I really had no intention to spend the 3 days of Sukkot in the Dominican Republic. 

With one flight coming in from Ft. Lauderdale to Santo Domingo on Tuesday, and one flight flying from Santiago to Miami on Wednesday, that was the route I had to fly.

Here are pictures from Santo Domingo airport

Since the bris was going to take place in Santiago, we had a 3-hr drive, in which I got to see the Dominican Republic "countryside." Lots of motorized bicycles on the road. :)
The mountains are stunning!

And here is a section of roadway that reminded me (a bit) of the Palisades (NY/NJ)

Here is the view from my hosts' apartment.

Grateful to havebeen invited. Honored to have played a role. And appreciative of the opportunity to visit a country I might not have otherwise ever visited were it not for this profession!
