David Rawdin, MD-pediatrician, Certified Mohel
David Rawdin, a.k.a David ben Moshe, grew up in a small town west of Philadelphia surrounded by Judaism- its religion, customs and traditions. Today, he continues to practice as an observant Jew while living just outside Center City Philadelphia.
He was the first pediatrician to perform circumcisions at the hospital, and he mentored and trained the other pediatricians/neonatologists to perform this procedure. Dr. Rawdin went on to obtain his certification as a Reform Mohel from the Berit Mila Board of Reform Judaism through the Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles, California.
“As a Mohel, I get to fulfill two Mitzvot,” shares Dr. Rawdin. “One involves the act of performing Berit Mila and starting a boy on a lifelong journey of being Jewish. And, on a more personal level, helping others by teaching and conveying through words and actions the meaning of being a Jew.”
“It is my hope that you and your family will invite me to share in the nachas of Berit Mila and to help celebrate such a joyous and significant day in the life of your newborn son.”
