>Professional Mohel


Created by Bonnie Schupp

My husband David found an interesting business card while taking care of his mother’s things after she died. It was a card from the mohel who presided at his bris.

Always one to find a humorous side of things, David posed as a rabbi from your worst nightmare. You can see that he really got into his role.

We then brainstormed with ideas for captions. The list below is what we came up with. Maybe you can add some of your own.

  • Sharp-witted mohel, circumspect to the point.
  • Mohel with sharp knife for hire.
  • David cut short his job training.
  • David’s new job was cutting edge.
  • David’s new career required circumspect and forethought.
  • David cut up before every bris.
  • The bris took an unexpected turn.
  • Overly endowed baby met his match.
  • With sharply honed skills, David began.
  • David scorned new cutting edge technology.
  • David always sliced through bureaucratic details.

  3. ………………….It would be nice if some of the reporting on this subject focused on the many Jews who are opposed to circumcision.
    Some Jews feel the time has come for a symbolic bris without surgery.
