A Beautiful Sentiment

At today's bris a self-described "grandmother-age" woman said to me, "It was so nice to meet you. It's good to see a young person who enjoys being Jewish and contributes to Judaism in this manner."

Her husband also commented how years ago the thought was that Mohels will die out. It is therefore nice (if not surprising) to see a young mohel.

I know I won't be young forever. But while I am still blessed with relative youth, I am grateful for the opportunity to play this role at this stage of life.

I look forward to the day when I'll look back and see another generation of Mohels being trained to undertake this task that helps families fulfill this sacred and ancient mitzvah and tradition.
