Cantor Howard Glantz performs circumcision on newborn boys only.  He is a specialist and has been for nearly 30 years, since 1991.  For ritual circumcision as a mohel, the Jewish covenantal ceremony, visit www.phillybris.com
Cantor Glantz began training to perform circumcisions on infant boys in November of 1990.  After certification from OB/Gyn, Jacob Shragowitz, of the Jacobi Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, he began performing ritual circumcision as a mohel. ​Shortly into his tenure, he was called upon by non-Jewish families to perform their son's circumcision.  Oftentimes, these babies are born at birthing centers or at home.  Many families prefer the fast technique, the efforts taken to reduce discomfort and the overall holistic approach of Cantor Glantz. 
For nearly 30 years, Cantor Howard Glantz has served in this capacity.  He has felt privileged to attend ceremonies arriving by foot, car, taxi, bus, train and even by plane to accommodate the needs of families.  Can he help you?
