Mazal tov on the birth of your son!

With a newborn, you are surely busy. So everything you need for your son’s bris is accessible from this web page.

For a list of the honors in the ceremony, along with information about the law, tradition, and ceremony of brit milah, as well as a consent form, instructions on care, and everything else you need to know about a bris but were afraid to ask, please
click here to download my Parent's Guide to Ritual Circumcision. Please, when calling me to schedule a Bris, make sure that no one else in the family has been tasked with this job to avoid embarrassing situations for the family.

I am a practicing board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist located on Long Island, licensed in the state of New York and a Senior Attending Physician at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, where I am the Director, Newborn Circumcision Services. (I may have been fortunate enough to have delivered your baby or that of a friend or relative!) I have performed thousands of circumcisions since 1975 and completed the Brit Kodesh curriculum of the Rabbinical Assembly at The Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City for physician Mohalim in 2003. As a licensed physician, I am able to provide local anesthesia that is both medically recommended as well as religiously acceptable, for a "near-painless bris". For more information about my credentials,
click here. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends anesthesia for circumcisions, it is always the choice of the parents and the pediatrician as to whether or not it is used.

Please feel free to browse this website for information you need to be ready for one of the most special and important days in your baby boy’s life. And, again, mazal tov! May your son be a blessing to you, your family and the Jewish people.
