L.A. Mohel by David Bezmozgis ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This upbeat, often humorous film presents three busy mohels - Jewish ritual circumcisers-as they practice their ancient profession in modern Los Angeles. One is a young doctor with a flair for show business ("The Mohel to the Stars"); one is a nurse midwife with a spiritual bent; and one is an Orthodox rabbi whose skill has consecrated thousands of male babies. What L.A. Mohel does exceptionally well is to show how this 3700 year-old ritual is an occasion for joy and celebration, and how Jews of various cultural backgrounds express their identity, their faith, and their family ties, in these early moments of life.
