who we are and what we do

The Initiation Society is the oldest Anglo-Jewish organisation. Founded in 1745, it exists to ensure the highest medical and religious standards for Bris Milah (circumcision) are adhered to by our Mohelim (practitioners). The Initiation Society works closely with the London Beth Din, and all of our Mohelim have undergone formal training in the medical and Halachic (religious) aspects of Bris Milah. We require every registered Mohel to be insured either with the Initiation Society or with an independent medical indemnity organisation. If you have a Bris Milah which you would like us to perform, we recommend that you contact a Mohel from the list. The Mohel will be able to provide you with all of the details you will need in order to understand and prepare for both the procedure and the aftercare.
