Whether you know in advance you’re having a boy or you find out at birth, choosing a mohel (ritual circumcision specialist) can be a nerve-wracking decision if you don’t know who to ask. We’re lucky to have a long list of choices in Boston which should allow each family to choose a mohel whose procedure and style they feel most comfortable with. But it’s a big job to call them all and figure out what the differences are between them. We’re conducting interviews with as many of the mohalim (pl. mohel) in the Boston area as we can, asking the questions parents want to know, and passing that information on to you. Watch the video here to get a feel for what it’s like to meet the mohel. You can read the full interview on the Jewish Birth Network website.
