“Rabbi Sionit performed a beautiful Bris for our son. He met with us prior to the Bris to familiarize himself with our family, discuss the details of the ceremony and circumcision procedure and gave us guidance on choosing a beautiful Hebrew name. We felt very comfortable with Rabbi Sionit performing the traditional Jewish circumcision, which only took a matter of minutes. My son was back in my arms very soon after the procedure. Rabbi Sionit came back to our house the next day to check on the baby and make sure he was doing well. With five children of his own he was very comfortable in handling our son. All in all we were very pleased with our experience. Rabbi Sionit is very personable, knowledgeable, warm and caring and an asset to the bay area Jewish community.”

–Joe and Michelle Schwartz

“Rabbi Sionit performed my son’s brit, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.  Rabbi Sionit gave generously of his time, visiting both the day before and the day after the brit to make sure our baby was doing well. He uses fully sterilized equipment, and his procedure is quick and sanitary.  When we had concerns about our son’s healing process, Rabbi Sionit made himself immediately available to us to examine the baby and make sure he was healing properly. I recommend him as a mohel to all families, even the most religiously observant.”

–Helen Chernicoff MD

“I strongly recommend Rabbi Zecharia Sionit as a Mohel. Not only has he done Britot for members of my community, but he also performed the Bris of my son. He did a wonderful job, and his composure and expertise were invaluable during such a typically overwhelming time. My wife and I appreciated that he continued to check up on us, and showed a strong dedication to us as individuals, as well as his craft.”

–Rabbi Joshua Strulowitz, Congregation Adath Israel, San Francisco

“I write this note in praise of the mohel, Rabbi Zecharia Sionit. I had the privilege of observing Rabbi Sionit, when he performed the Brit Milah on my grandson, in Palo Alto, CA. We were impressed by Rabbi Sionit’s meticulous and expert techniques, his care for proper sterile surgical procedures, and his professionalism. It goes without saying that the brit was done perfectly and flawlessly, and we are very pleased. He met the family the day before and the day after the brit, and explained everything in a compassionate and professional way. I would not hesitate to recommend Rabbi Sionit’s services as a certified mohel to any child in need of a brit.”

ברית מילה לאוריה
.10.28.2010 הרב זכריה היה המוהל של בני הקטן אוריה. הברית נערכה ביום שישי בתאריך
המוהל עשה עבודה מצויינת. הוא היה מאוד יסודי ומהיר וכמובן התוצאה היתה בדיוק כנדרש. בנוסף לכך היינו מאוד מרוצים מהיחס והמאכפתיות שלו. לאחר הברית הוא הגיע מספר פעמים לביתי על מנת לטפל בפצע , לחליף תחבושות וכד’. אנחנו מאוד התרשמנו ממנו וממליצים בחום לכולם

“Rabbi Sionit is a wonderful, caring, and sensitive mohel. He was able to concentrate on the task at hand, but still engage and invite all that were in attendance to feel involved in the brit. He came the day after and made sure that David was alright, and was very patient and helpful in giving me advice, instructions, and tips on how to care for him. Even now, every time Rabbi Sionit sees David (9 months later), I see the special connection that they have, and how the Rabbi takes a special interest in him.”

–Yonit Shemtob, Esq.

“Rabbi Sionit is a very professional Mohel. From the first time he came to see my son, before the Brit, he assuaged all of my fears. At the Brit itself, he was very skilled and I felt completely at ease with his capabilities. He was there for my husband and I after the Brit as well, showing us hands on how to care for our son in the days to come. He was also readily available by phone and even to meet in person whenever I had any questions. I would definitely recommend him as a Mohel.”

–Rachel & Josh Licht

Dear Rabbi Sionit ,
Thank you for serving as the mohel at our son’s bris. We really appreciated you meeting with us beforehand to go over what to expect and explaining the ceremony to us. It also meant a lot to us that you came to check on Dylan the day after the ceremony. You were very helpful and professional throughout the process. It was a pleasure for you to be apart of this special time in our lives.
