A Mohel in South Florida

Before I became a "mohel in South Florida" I was a mohel in New York for ten years.

One of my mohel colleagues in Florida is Rabbi Howard Seif, whose father, Rabbi Abraham Seif was the mohel in South Florida for many many many years. The elder Rabbi Seif passed away last year, and his son has taken over his famous moniker "Seif the Knife."

It is an honor to have him as a colleague. He is a wonderful mentsch, and a person with whom it is easy to share stories, techniques and to discuss the "trade." As in any profession, it is important to continue to learn new things - and I learn from him as well.

I hope he feels the same way.
