He sounds exceptional, in more ways than one :P

He is indeed. And AFAIK he refuses to take any money (at least within the community) to do a bris.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I know one Chabad Mohel, when he was doing one of his Brisim and he knew the mother did her rounds. Chose not to endanger himself and used an instrument.

And even drove 1.5 hours to do a bris, didn't accept anything, even to cover tolls and gas

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

If it's a non-religious person I assume YMMV.

Are you referring to a Chabad family or a non-Chabad/non-religious family?
Does any Mohel do MBP in SA? IIRC the Beth Din doesn't allow

The one about doing the rounds... (possibly the make up of the community being very traditional but not "frum", AIDS and other STD's?)
Maybe, I dont remember my choices at the time (Sher x2, Saul E, A Gerson?) Who are the Chabad Mohelim?

Well, wouldn't being a visible part of the frum community take care of that?

Dr. Singer is one, I'm not sure if there is anyone else since I left. Though I believe many Chabad families use Rabbi Gerson - my comment was tongue in cheek.
