Re: Rabbi Moshe Chaim Friedman, Certified Mohel

Dear Parents:

As Chair of the NYU School of Medicine Department of Surgery, I am happy to recommend Rabbi Moshe Chaim Friedman as a Mohel to perform Ritual Circumcisions.  I have seen him demonstrate utmost professionalism in his surgical skills, and I am impressed with his technical abilities, and overall expertise. 

As a surgeon, I am always concerned to see that the Bris is conducted not only in a professional manner but also using aseptic technique.  I am happy to say that Rabbi Friedman adheres to these guidelines and is truly an expert in the field of circumcision.

As a parent, you can be confident that your child is in most caring and capable hands.
