Dear Parent,


I have had the pleasure of being acquainted with Rabbi Dov Shapiro for the past 6 years. During that time I have been impressed by, and benefited from, his guidance, teaching abilities, and knowledge and understanding of Jewish law and traditions.


I have also observed his performance of Bris Milah - ritual circumcision and I would like to commend his skill as a Mohel. His excellent technique is evident throughout the procedure, as well as in the beautiful results after the Bris.


It is my distinct pleasure to be able to recommend his services as a Mohel to my patients.  If I can be of further assistance please feel free to contact my office at (718) 918-1100.
