The GEORGIA MOHEL
As a physician, I have performed hundreds of hospital-based circumcisions prior to becoming certified as a Mohelet (a female Mohel) by the Berit Mila Board of Reform Judaism of the Hebrew Union College to perform infant circumcision and ritual baby naming services. I am one of only two women in Georgia certified to perform Berit Mila. My interest in becoming a mohelet began when my oldest daughter was born, and a female OB/GYN performed her baby naming ceremony. I thought that this was a wonderful way to connect with the Jewish community and share my medical training while helping families fulfill the mitzvah of berit mila. Having moved from Rhode Island to Georgia, I am now practicing gynecology at the Atlanta Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery Center in Atlanta. I am board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I enjoy teaching medical students and resident physicians.
While working in private practice in Rhode Island, I served on clinical faculty at Brown University's Warren Alpert Medical School and the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a teacher, I was recognized as the Community Based Teacher of the Year award two
years in a row, as well as having received several Excellence in Teaching awards. As a clinician, I provided Obstetrical and
Gynecological care as part of the Women and Infants Hospital Alliance.
I received my undergraduate degree from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY, having done additional undergraduate
work at Columbia University of New York and Oxford University in England. I graduated from the University of New England
College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine in 2001. My post graduate training included a rotating medical internship at the
Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill PA and a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Francis Hospital in
I am an active member of Temple Sinai in Sandy Springs Georgia where I live with my husband and two teenage daughters.
