In addition to performing Britot (Brises) I am also available for baby namings, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, weddings and funerals. I have been in the pulpit, as a cantor, for 35 years and I am experienced in all aspects of Jewish life-cycle evens. Again, I try to make the experience easy for you. I do not make unreasonable demands on you because I want to make Jewish life-cycle events easily accessible to you.
I specialize in walking you through the steps in order to make your event a positive and memorable experience for you, your family and your guests. There is a concept in Jewish tradition which is called Hidur Mitzvah. In short, it means making the Mitzvah beautiful. By creating a meaningful ceremony around a Bris ceremony, baby naming or a Bar Mitzvah or wedding, we can achieve the goal of Hidur Mitzvah. To this end, I encourage you to include members of your family or close friends in the ceremony. In consultation with you, I can create just the right ceremony for your occasion.
As a Mohel in NYC and the Tri-State Area, I look forward to the opportunity of working closely with you toward that goal. Please make sure to email me at Greatmohel@aol.com or call me 973-467-2691 to discuss making your event for your bris in NYC or the surrounding areas special. Cantor Richard Nadel
