I would like to send my blessings to you to strengthen the Mitzvah of Brit Milah, and I hope that you will find a way to alert the public that not every Mohel is certified, and that they should be checked and investigated.
We need to find a way to publicize this situation; I have myself seen Mohalim violate the laws of the Halacha while performing Brit Milah. Many significant Rabbis and scholars are now aware of this problem. Our dear friend, the genius Rabbi Avraham Yehiel, is already working towards a solution.
I am willing to help this cause in any way, to make sure this Mitzvah is being performed according to all the Jewish laws. And may Hashem help bring blessings in our hands.
I am looking forward to Hashem’s salvation and to mercy from the heavens. May the year ??? be a year of blessings and success in spirituality, and all the best.
