Calcium Alginate

New delivery arrived!

I love using calcium alginate as a bandage post-bris. It contains the blood very well and comes off so easily on account of the way it gels when it comes in contact with the bris-wound.

My supply was running low, so my friend Mr. JG from NY hooked me up with the latest supply.

Good for a year of brisses! And loving it

Metzitzah Tubes - Approved by Arukh HaShulchan

The two short letters were composed by Rabbi Yechiel Michel HaLevi Epstein, author of the Arukh HaShulchan on The Friday of Parshas Chukas 5659 a.k.a. 1899.

He blessese those who have innovated the glass tube for Metzitzah, expressing how the merit of the mitzvah (not clear if he's referring to the mitzvah of circumcision or the "mitzvah" of metzitzah) should protect those who made it and use it.
