In addition to being a religious officiant, the Mohel is a specialist in his field. Many physicians call Mohalim for the Brit Milah of their own sons. The surgery involved is simple and safe and any reputable Mohel is competent and highly qualified to perform a Brit Milah.

It is noteworthy to mention in this connection, that, following tradition of the Royal House of England, which requires circumsicion of all male children, it was the Jewish Mohel of London rather than the Royal Physician who was called to circumcise the son of Princess Elizabeth.


The following news item from a British newspaper will be of interest:

Crown Prince Charles Circumcised by a London Mohel
London (JTA)-Crown Prince Charles, son of Princess Elizabeth and heir to the British throne, was circumcised in Buckingham Palace by Rabbi Jacob Snowman, official Mohel of the London Jewish community.
