The Mohel

themohel

Rabbi Adam Epstein originally from Houston, TX, has degrees in Economics-Mathematics and Philosophy from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Later, he learned in Yeshiva at the Rabbinical College of America in Morristown, NJ. He continued in Collel Menachem in Brooklyn, NY where he was ordained as a rabbi.

In 2010 in New York, he was trained and certified as a mohel to be attentive to all important medical and halachic issues as well as to be proficient in the latest medical technology and information. He also trained in Israel under various top mohelim in Bnei Brak, Beitar, and Jerusalem. He is qualified to perform bris milah on babies, children, and adults.

July 2014, after demonstrating distinguished levels in medical and Jewish ritual knowledge and upon performing numerous excellent bris milah procedures, Rabbi Adam Epstein was accepted into the American Board of Ritual Circumcision, qualifying him as a Board Certified Mohel.

In the summer of 2015, Rabbi Epstein became certified as an EMT, joining Hatzalah of Chicago as an emergency responder.

Rabbi Epstein has performed many inspiring, beautiful ceremonies around the US, many prefer him for his focus on baby and parent comfort and pain-free yet sterile methods. He is one of the few mohelim who does not use a clamp, hemostats (medical pliers), or injections; all which can cause needless pain to the baby.


"During my summers as a teen, I worked and volunteered in hospitals and medical laboratories and learned medical ethics and sterilization techniques from my father Dr. Henry F. Epstein (of beloved memory) – a revered scientist and physician. I have also been trained in advanced First Aid and Pediatrics which helps me work with your doctor to ensure each bris is done at the right time and with the proper care. Through my rigorous training and attention to details, the parents will always be satisfied with each bris I do."
