Dear Rabbi Mozes.

Thank you so much for coming to Philadelphia and doing my Bris.

Unfortunately, when I was born, my parents were not able to perform this Commandment on the eighth day of my life, due to Anti-Semitism in Communist Russia. At the age of 27, I decided with the help of two individuals, to finally perform a Great Commandment. I really appreciate your participation in being a part of this very important ritual. Two years following the Bris, my life changed dramatically. I become observant and G-D gave me and my wife a beautiful daughter named Elisheva Yaffa. My Bris circumcision was my first step into religious life and you were a big part of it. Once again, Thank You and with G-d’s help, may you continue to perform this Great Commandment.

Adult Bris Testimonial 2014

Boruch Mozes ensured that my Bris was a kosher and truly fulfilling experience. He could not have been more sensitive or accommodating, working with my schedule and traveling a number of hours to a location convenient for me. He is personable, positive, and followed up with me on a number of occasions. before and after the Bris. I would highly recommend him to anyone for this crucial mitzvah!

Adult Bris Circumcision Hospital Surgical Procedure

An adult surgical Bris procedure may be performed in a hospital. The procedure involves anesthesia, surgical removal of foreskin, cauterization, and stitches. A surgeon leads the procedure and a mohel removes the foreskin. It is important to have the surgeon agree to have the mohel remove the foreskin.

The Bris surgical procedure is followed by a ceremony in the recovery room, celebrating the Bris and presenting him with a Jewish name. Rabbi Mozes has been performing hospital Bris surgical circumcision procedures and ceremonies on children and adults in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania for many years.

Adult Circumcision Surgery

There are various surgical methods that may be employed for performing adult circumcision. The following method may be used for adults and for children. Please see “source” for information about anesthetic and post-operative care.

Dorsal slit circumcision

(Warning: Contains graphic images. Source:

To perform the dorsal slit circumcision, clamp the foreskin at the 12-o'clock position with 2 straight hemostats to limit bleeding. Sharply incise the tissues between the 2 clamps perpendicular to the corona. Make the proximal circumscribing incision. Excise the foreskin at its base (approximately 1 cm proximal to the coronal sulcus) with scissors to produce a cosmetically attractive circumcised penis. The amount of skin left below the coronal sulcus should be no more than 1 cm long to prevent edema, adhesions, and, occasionally, paraphimosis. Ligate superficial veins and obtain hemostasis with electrocautery.

Circumferentially approximate the proximal and distal edges of the foreskin with 4.0-5.0 absorbable sutures (children) or 3.0-4.0 absorbable sutures (adults) in an interrupted fashion. During the circumcision, the use of a thin tapered (noncutting) needle is recommended because it is less traumatic to the tissues and causes less bleeding.

Bacitracin ointment is used to lubricate the suture material (eg, chromic) to facilitate passage of the suture through the delicate skin tissues. This is especially helpful in the pediatric population. Alternatively, mineral oil may be used as a lubricant.

"I have had the occasion of working with Rabbi Boruch Mozes on urological surgery. Rabbi Mozes has impressed me with his professionalism and judgment."
Dr. Howard M. Snyder-a world renowned urological surgeon. Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia
I am happy to confidently recommend Rabbi Boruch Mozes as an experienced and highly skilled mohel. Many families have been extremely satisfied with his services as a mohel. I wish him continued success.
Dr. Batya Wagner Pediatrician NY

As both a parent and a medical professional, I was extremely impressed with the Bris that Rabbi Boruch Mozes performed on my son. I have in the past and will continue to recommend him to all as an outstanding mohel.
Dr. Isaac Braverman Pediatrician NJ

When our third son was born on a Shabbos and the mohel that we had used for our previous two sons was going to Israel, I was concerned. Rabbi Mozes made the several hour trip to our community and spent Shabbos away from his family so that the bris could be performed on the proper day. He was highly qualified and his manner was reassuring. I would recommend Rabbi Mozes to any family desiring an experienced and skilled mohel for the circumcision of their son.
