This month, the Brit Milah Program of Reform Judaism proudly certified the very first liberal mohel in Spain. Dr. Felipe Ojeda is a prominent surgeon and head of the department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the General Hospital of Granollers (Barcelona, Spain). He is a member of the progressive Bet Shalom congregation of Barcelona. The Brit Milahh Board has trained and certified hundreds of liberal mohalim now serving communities throughout North America and the world. Dr. Ojeda was honored last week for this accomplishment at the World Union of Progressive Judaism conference. A directory of all current members of NOAM (National Organization of American Mohalim) is available on the Brit Milah website at www.beritmila.org.
If you know a physician or nurse midwife you could recommend for this training, please contact Rabbi Julie Pelc Adler, Director of the Brit Milah Program of Reform Judaism at firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-765-2191.
