Rob interviews with Rabbi Chanan Feld, a mohel based in Berkeley on how to act a bris (Jewish circumcision ceremony).


In the Jewish faith a “bris” or circumcision is a family event that celebrates a baby boy’s entering into a life of Judaism. While the ceremony is joyous, it can also be an awkward experience for some attendees. Rob talks about this dicey situation with Rabbi Chanan Feld, an orthodox mohel based in California, and relays his findings to NPR’s David Kestenbaum.
