Your Mohel…Rabbi Jay M. Bauman, M.D. ב”ה
Rabbi Jay Bauman, M.D. is a mohel of vast experience, stemming from many years of his widely known and respected medical and surgical/obstetrical practice located in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, New York. The vast array of halachic laws relating to the performance and practice of brit milah were extensively studied and mastered by Rabbi, Dr. Bauman, under the tutelage of esteemed Rosh Kollel, Rabbi Chaim Schabes, of Monsey, New York and the reknown mohel, Rabbi Efraim Josevic of London.

At this time, he is dedicating his time to writing shiurim (course material) on ‘The Laws and Practice of Milah,’ for Yeshiva Perchai Shoshanim in Jerusalem. This material will not only be a translation and comprehensive review of the laws of brit milah stemming the centuries of halachic literature, but will also include an understanding of those medical conditions found in newborns preparing to undergo milah. To be certain, a mohel must be expertly versed in both the halachic (knowledge about Jewish law) and medical aspects of milah (prevention and treatment of complications).
