The Boston Based Mohel

Dr. Merlin
Certified Mohel


Congratulations on the birth of your son!

The arrival of a new child is an exciting time. Your son’s arrival will change your world and bring you joy and happiness.  This time can also be overwhelming, with much to do and prepare for. 

My goal is to help you remove one concern from your list by helping you obtain the information you need to have a meaningful Brit Milah (Circumcision).

I am happy to answer any questions you have and will be there to ensure both you and your new son have the safest and best Bris possible.  Please explore the site or go straight to the Schedule Your Bris to book your upcoming ceremony.
