Rachel Azaria's Knesset Proposal
Have you ever wondered why there is no regulation when it comes to Mohalim? That this, in a sense, says that anyone can make themselves a mohel and go perform a procedure on an eight day old child. Then how do we know that our children are protected? Truthfully, there isn’t a way for us to know. Therefore, together with MK Avraham Negosa, we’ve introduced a law that says at minimum every mohel has to have insurance. That this, in our opinion, is a sufficient level of regulation for this matter. Despite the fact that this sounds obvious, this is a difficult bill to get passed. Therefore we need you with us, in order that together we’ll be able to protect our children. Um, one second, Mazal Tov, right?
This law was written in conjunction with the organizations Itim and Naami Torah V’Avodah.
