Rabbi Schulgasser not only performed a beautiful ceremony for my son’s bris but was also comforting and reassuring through the process. Even more, he was incredibly precise and as a result, my son healed quickly and perfectly. He walked us through everything, what to expect and followed up numerous times to answer any questions or concerns. I can not recommend him enough!
MD Atlanta, GA
As a pediatrician, I can only offer accolades for the excellence, professionalism, and precision that Rabbi Schulgasser delivers to the baby. Wih his skills, vast experience, and an extreme sensitivity to the infant’s comfort, Rabbi Schulgasser has earned my highest recommendation without reservation.

Thank you for coming all the way to Alaska and making our son's Brit Milah so special. Your caring attitude and professionalism made us feel that he was in good hands, as you answered all our questions before and days after the Brit.
MD Mexico, MO
It was an honor to have Rabbi Schulgasser as our grandson's mohel. Elchanan is a warm and caring person, a real "mentsch." We enjoyed the bris very much.
J. & K. Topeka
It was wonderful to meet you as well. Jaden is doing great, sleepy as usual and nursing and peeing like always! Not fussy at all, doesn't even make a peep with diaper changes. We are very pleased!! If we ever have another boy we will definitely be calling you again.

It's been three months since you visited us for our son's circumcision but I'm still thinking about the time you spent with our family and what a blessing it was. You were so calm and so kind to us and to our son. Also, you cracked us up--thanks for that. I hope our paths will cross again sometime. Until then, blessings to you and your family

Thank you for doing the Brit Milah for our son. We appreciated how you incorporated our family minhagim. We were also delighted that you supervised my husband in "making the cut" himself. Should we ever be blessed to need a mohel again, we will be delighted to use your services.

Dear Rabbi Schulgasser, Your expertise and professionalism were very comforting. May you continue to be a source of light and Torah to the entire community. Mazal Tov!
אלפי תודות על חויית ברית מעל ומעבר למצופה הגענו מלאי חששות ולחוצים ואין מילים בפי לבטא את השקט הנפשי, ו "החוויה המתקנת" שעברנו בזכות היחס וההסברים לפני במהלך ואחרי הברית. השלווה, המקצועיות ללא פשרות ,הסובלנות והחיוך התמידי אפשרו לנו אפילו להנות במסיבת הברית. תומר נראה יותר רגוע בידיך מאשר אצלנו אפילו לאחר הברית . גם שהקפצנו אותך באמצע הלילה בגלל חששות מיותרים הגעת במהירות הסברת באריכות והצלחת להרגיע אותנו ולהחזיר את הדברים לפרופוציה הנכונה. פחות מ-48 שעות אחרי ואנחנו נדהמים מההחלמה המהירה. ישר כח ומי יתן ועוד הרבה משפחות ימלו את בנם באוירה נעימה ומקצועית שכזו
Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a Physician?
I'm not. I am a Rabbi and traditionally trained to perform circumcision. Many of my clients are physicians, however, or nurses, midwives, members of the medical community and those from every walk of life! Several have supplied references on the testimonial page of this site.
Whom do you serve?
Everyone! My practice is divided about equally between parents of every background who want a regular circumcision for their sons, and Jewish parents who want a bris milah (religious ceremony).
Do you perform circumcisions for adults and children?
My expertise is in infant circumcision only. For adults and children in Atlanta, I recommend Dr. Moshe Shapiro, Advanced Urology, 678-344-8900, firstname.lastname@example.org. His work is excellent. (He does not perform circumcisions for infants; I only perform circumcisions for infants.) Please send him my warmest regards!
What is your fee for services?
Very reasonable. I do have a set fee, but please don't let that be a consideration. I'm sure we can work something out.
Will you travel?
Very possibly. I've even been to Alaska for a brissos (circumcisions)! And if I'm busy or otherwise unavailable, I can likely refer you to a qualified Mohel who can.
I've never done this before and I'm nervous!
I'll be delighted to spend as much time with you as you'd like, answer any questions, and help in any way I can.
When should I contact you?
Call or email any time. Right now is fine! Before the baby's born, or after--either is great. After the baby is born, earlier is better than later for scheduling and logistical reasons.
