We trusted Rabbi Friedman to be our first child’s mohel and we are so happy that we did! He was an amazing resource and guide throughout the process. I was very nervous the night before the bris and Rabbi Friedman took the time to counsel me and offered words of strength and inspiration. It is obvious that Rabbi Friedman does not simply go through the motions as a mohel – rather he helps parents fulfill this important mitzvah with enthusiasm and true spiritual sensitivity. We could not recommend him more highly!
The BEST there is! Rabbi Friedman is funny, personable and professional. He explained and demonstrated the aftercare in great detail and is available for followup anytime you have questions or want confirmation that the bris area is healing well. Would definitely recommend him without hesitation.
Had a wonderful experience having Rabbi Friedman perform my son’s Bris! He is super prepared and I felt very calm as a new mother knowing my son was in good hands. Highly recommend Rabbi Friedman.
I think I was the MOST nervous mother before my son’s Bris but Rabbi Friedman did an excellent job. He is very quick and professional. I know everyone says he does a very entertaining speech before the Bris but I requested he keep the before very short to get the actual Bris over with. He complied with my sort of unusual request without a word. He answered ALL of my questions and generally was very honest and open about the whole procedure. Also I think my baby cries more during a bath than during his Bris! I really can’t imagine what I would have done without such an experienced mohel and someone who is so wonderful at reassuring the parents and explaining the aftercare.
Rabbi Friedman is the very best. He made the occasion of our son’s Bris a special event for everyone in attendance. He was funny and charming and spent time explaining everything to the guests. Especially my Russian-speaking family was so impressed with his warm, humorous style mixed with his lovely and clear explanations.
The cutting itself was quick and my son didn’t even cry after. Rabbi Friedman took us through the procedure and aftercare numerous times to make sure we were clear and comfortable with the instructions. He took us through some post Bris diaper changes and then after we were home, he checked in on us every hour to see how we were doing. Talk about 5 star care!
He made this nervous hormonal mama laugh through the whole event – now that is pure magic!
