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!

Cleveland, OH

I probably knew that Superman was "born" in Cleveland. But just in case anyone does not know, this display greets you as you leave Cleveland airport. 

I came to Cleveland to do a double-bris for these twins. 
OK. Cutest picture ever.

Oy vey. Are these boys adorable, or what? And get a load of that hair!
They were born a little early, so they were a little small at birth. Their size was the main cause for the delay, but even the delay was only a week and change. Neither of them weighed 6 pounds yet by the time bris-day rolled around.

Here is the pre-bris recitations for one of the brisses.

And here they are, immediately after the bris. Both pretty chilled out. I understand they are pretty calm in general.

One more - of the champs!


p.s. I flew home on Jetblue, and was unable to pick a seat before the flight. Sometimes, on a full flight, this has benefits, as I was assigned an "extra leg room" seat!

Super comfy!


Dallas, TX

Sunday night I flew into Dallas for a Monday morning Bris. Because it was a Fast Day (17 Tammuz observed) I brought a sandwich with me to eat on the plane. That prompted this experience.


Welcome to Love Airport

Of course, as they say, everything is bigger in Texas. The local synagogue was under construction/renovation, so the bris took place in the local school, which was closed for the summer.  The campus of the school is incredible - so much thought was put into the design at the time it was created. It is a marvel.

Anyway, this is what you see when you walk in to the campus.

The bris took place in the Beit Midrash, which is the center of this institution - as the Torah is the center of our lives. Very symbolic.

Here is the baby when he is being named. And the photo in real time of the naming taking place.

Mazal tov! I look forward to returning to Dallas for the next bris!
