Thank you for visiting my web site. Please be aware that many non-Jewish families are looking for a different approach to circumcision. Most often, they have attended a Bris that I performed and they want to know if my services are available to them. They are! Many religious non-Jewish families are seeking a more spiritual approach to circumcision. Very often, the parents will opt not to circumcise their child in the hospital and after they leave the hospital, they change their minds. Instead of waiting six months to have their baby circumcised in the hospital under general anesthetic, I can perform the circumcision in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
In general, depending on the weight and development of the baby, this can be done up to six weeks following the birth. Or, if it will make the family more comfortable and you are amenable, the family can schedule a mutually convenient time and the circumcision may be performed in your office. I travel throughout the entire tri-state area including New York (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island), New Jersey, Connecticut, Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk and the Hamptons), Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange counties and internationally.
I have a flexible fee schedule and can provide a receipt for them to submit to their insurance company. (I advise them to be prepared for rejection.) I care deeply and passionately about what I do and would love to see all circumcisions performed quickly, gently and compassionately. There are very few individuals out there today who possess the training and experience that I have acquired during my forty-year career as a certified Ritual Circumciser (Mohel). If you think your patients would like to avail themselves of my services or may be interested in this approach to circumcision, kindly pass this information along to them. If you would like additional information about what I do, please email me at
Finally, if you know of any pediatric or obstetric practices that no longer perform circumcisions, please pass my contact information to them. I would be happy to offer my services to them, as well. Thank you very much.
