Q. I am due to have a baby boy soon
or I have had a baby boy, how much advance notice do I need to give you?
A. Ideally you should contact me within the first three days of baby being born. This will give me
enough time to asses baby's progress to allow for him to be circumcised on the traditional eighth day.
Q. My son is older and has still not had a bris; can it still be done?
A. Yes, I practice Bris Milah for all ages, including babies, children and adults.
Q. My son was born on Shabbat. As the eighth day is Shabbat, can
he still have a Bris on the Shabbat?
A. Yes he can
but there are some conditions. A Bris must be performed on Shabbat if it is the eighth day, when baby was born by a natural
delivery. If baby was born by Caesarean, then it must be postponed. There must be no transgression of the Shabbat day.
Q. My partner is not Jewish; can our boy still have
his Bris done by you?
A. If baby's mother was
born Jewish or had a recognised conversion to Judaism then the answer is yes.
Q. Where can we have the Bris ceremony?
At yours or your parents home or in a synagogue or at my practice, the choice is yours.
Q. We live outside London;
will you still provide us with your service?
Yes, I will certainly try. I am also available to travel abroad when possible.
Q. We need help in choosing a Jewish name, can you help us in choosing one?
A. Yes, I am more than happy to give you guidance.
