What the Professionals Say
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. Read more “H. Leon Pachter, MD”

When a Jewish couple is blessed with a newborn son one of the first important decisions they need to make is the selection of a Mohel to perform their son’s Bris. Parents should seek out a Mohel that is caring and technically skilled. Rabbi Moshe Chaim Friedman is such a person. I have known Rabbi… Friedman for over 10 years. During the past decade I have had the opportunity to witness this “Master” Mohel in action. From the moment he is called by new parents, to the preparation for the ceremony, performing the Bris itself and the post bris follow up, his attention to detail and his caring manner are second to none. Rabbi Friedman is unique in his ability to reach out to everyone present at the Bris. If you have ever attended a Bris ceremony performed by Rabbi Friedman you will never forget the experience. As a Pediatric Urologist I appreciate his use of sterile technique. The circumcision is performed accurately with almost no discomfort for the baby. Rabbi Friedman takes pride in explaining everything about the circumcision to the parents and always follows up with them to make sure they are comfortable with the post-Bris aftercare. It is without hesitation that I recommend Rabbi Moshe Chaim Friedman to perform your son ‘s Bris. Read more “Jeffrey A. Stock, MD”
