In the early 2000s, Mark Reiss, M.D. stepped up to the plate with an innovative concept. A retired radiologist and an active member of his Conservative congregation, Dr. Reiss felt compelled to help Jewish families seeking circumcision alternatives. He compiled, and has maintained, an online list of brit shalom officiants throughout the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. Today Mark Reiss’s list of brit shalom celebrants provides the names, locations, and contact info of more than 150 rabbis who say they will perform a brit shalom if asked. Cantors and lay officiants are also included on his list. With much love and dedication, Dr. Reiss has helped merge his list with Bruchim’s expanded Inclusion Directory, which includes welcoming Jewish institutions of all kinds. Bruchim is proud and honored to carry on, and expand upon, Dr. Reiss’ important work.
