For all of (two of) you who enjoyed my rant on who’s performing ritual circumcisions these days, you know that I have a uncharacteristically traditional preference for the Orthodox guy in the black hat.
However, after reading this article on female mohelim, I concede that having a lady perform a brit milah isn’t such a big deal, especially if the alternative is having the boy snipped unceremoniously in a hospital.
You may be wondering, But how it can this be kosher? After all, she doesn’t have a penis!
Guess it’s not a man’s world after all.
