Mohel suspended by Rabbinate for shoddy work

October 6, 2010 19:54

A Chabad mohel from northern Israel was suspended by a committee composed of representatives of the Chief Rabbinate, the Ministry of Religious Services, and the Health Ministry on Wednesday.

The mohel's work was called into question when it was discovered that some of his circumcisions had not properly removed the entire foreskin and families were reported to have taken their sons to doctors in order to "finish the job."

Although the mohel was suspended, the Rabbinate ruled that all of the previous circumcisions performed by the mohel are considered kosher.
