so professional and gentle...
Hazzan Howard Glantz was so professional and gentle with our newborn son. He was very accommodating to us & made himself accessible- answering all our questions. We are so pleased with his performance and grateful that he took the time to explain the process to us (as this is our firstborn son). As he sung and said a prayer welcoming our son into God's covenant, we felt at peace. He is so kind and has a great sense of humor! As we grow our family, we would love to use him again for any future sons! We are very happy!!! Glory be to God!

Cantor Glantz is wonderful!
He performs the ceremony with extreme care and gentleness for the child and guides the family through the entire process. He speaks beautifully and expounds upon the tradition for everyone in attendance. Last but not least he has a beautiful voice for singing !

a fantastic experience...
We had a fantastic experience with Howard with our first son and we fully intend on using his services again with our new son, who is due soon. I have and will continue to highly recommend his expertise to friends and family.

available for follow up questions...
Howard is knowledgeable and professional; he made himself available at convenient times, he came to us, and is very efficient and skilled at what he does. He left us with literature and supplies and further made himself available for follow up questions. If the occasion arises we will be calling him again!

So happy with Howard and his work...
My husband and I were very happy with Howard and his work! Before he came out to our house, we talked on the phone a couple of times. He explained everything to us and made a protective momma feel comfortable! Circumcision is a choice, and I'm glad we chose it! And I'm even happier we chose Howard to carry it out. My now 4 week old son is healed and doing well. Thank you!!

Surprising speed and beautiful blessing...
Thanks for coming out right to our home and circumcising our son. We were very impressed with the professional way you explained the procedure, and the way you skillfully carried out the circumcision . Our son healed nicely, and didn't seem to have much, if any pain through the healing process. We had our first two sons circumcised at a hospital, and had complications with the healing process. We didn't have any problems this time. You made us feel comfortable, and any time we had questions, you answered them quickly. I was surprised at how fast the procedure was performed and how soon our son calmed down and rested. We also appreciated the blessing you spoke over our son, because it is our prayer that one day he will become a mighty man of God.

Care and Precision
Both my husband and I continue to be very pleased with the care and precision in circumcision provided by Howard Glantz. With this being our first son, I as a new mother was very nervous, but Howard calmed our fears and gently explained each step of the process. He also informed us he was available afterwards, 24/7, should any problems and questions arise; and he did indeed promptly answer the questions we had in the days following. After the circumcision, Howard provided us with all the items needed to care for the procedure. Again, we have been so pleased with him in this process and highly recommend him!

were referred to Howard Glantz by my midwifery practice. Howard was always extremely helpful and clear when answering our many questions. It seems his main concern is that his clients feel comfortable and well-informed before the procedure. He circumcised our first son in 2010. Then we were happy to welcome him back into our home to circumcise our second son in 2012.
Weeks after our second son was circumcised, we had concern that part of the area was reattaching. He came over to our house a couple hours after we spoke to take a look and put our minds at ease. I appreciate how quickly he returns phone calls and addresses our concerns. He's always been very easy to get in contact with.
He does an excellent job and I would highly recommend Howard Glantz!

Being a midwife...
and seeing circumcisions in the hospital setting had tainted my views. At first, I was frightened by the whole idea of a non-doctor performing such an important procedure. When I became pregnant with my son, I knew that I would have him circumcised for several reasons. I just needed to find the right person for it.
When Cantor Glantz was recommended by my midwifery practice about his services, it was serendipity. My husband and I contacted Howard when I was 8 months pregnant and we felt right at ease. His training and experience was just what I was looking for.
I was so happy with the end result, that I recommend him to all my patients pregnant with boys.
Thank you Howard, for a wonderful experience

"Hazzan Howard K. Glantz is...
so amazingly skilled at what he does and was extremely accommodating for us, two essential qualities in such an important procedure. We were not happy with the limited choices available to us in our situation. What a blessing to have been connected to such a experienced and skilled professional!
From the first contact, he was extremely accommodating even though we are not Jewish and did not live close. He worked with us in detail, first helping us to work out the logistics, and was willing to travel up to where we live in the Poconos. He is very personable, kind, offering a touch of humor at just the right moment, and skilled at communicating, answering all of our questions as well as a few we didn't know to ask.
He walked us through the procedure, instructing us what to expect and what to do after the circumcision. Hazzan Glantz is amazingly skilled!! The procedure was quick and skillfully done with confidence and grace. With our permission, he was even kind to sing soothing tunes during the procedure, which calmed our hearts as well as set a spiritual tone that made the event special.
Instead of a cold hospital procedure, where we would most likely not be able to be with our son, we were both present. Our son's healing was quick and the pain was minimal. In all, a great experience and, should we be blessed with more sons, we will confidently desire his services again.
Thank you Hazzan Glantz, for all that you did for us, we count ourselves blessed that you shared your skills and heart with us on a very important day."

Dear Hazzan Howard,
This past Sunday I attended the bris of baby Sy. As a surgeon of over 30 years I was so impressed by your skills, compassion, coolness and equanimity under pressure. I wish that many of my colleagues would have those same characteristics. It was a delight to be a part of the mitzvah. You made the whole experience quite exhilarating. Congrats on your fine work.
