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!

Houston, TX - Shabbos Chanukah

I flew into Houston for a bris to take place on Shabbos Chanukah.

As the bris was on the Holy Day, I did not take any pictures at the bris. Sorry.

Anyway, this was my first time back in Houston since Hurricane Harvey. I had heard things were bad, but I didn't realize how bad. In one section of this neighborhood, every ranch (and not-elevated house) was ruined. Walking around it feels almost like a ghost town.

Even the main sanctuary of the synagogue, and most of the older building was destroyed beyond repair (they have a social hall, relatively new, which is elevated, which they are now using as their sanctuary and multi-purpose room)

On the other hand, they are building! New codes mean every new house needs to be raised above the ground.

And some houses whose basic structure wasn't damaged are being elevated. They will surely be gutted and remodeled when they are ready.

It will be nice to see this community back on its feet. It will take time.

Looking forward to my next trip - under better conditions for all!
