Dr. Roberts,

I am so sorry that this has taken so long to reach you. When it comes to matters of the heart it takes me while to put my thoughts onto paper. Once again, I want to THANK YOU for making Reid’s Bris a day to remember. Everyone said it was the most intimate and emotional Bris they had ever witnessed. Those who had never been to a Bris felt very much included and part of the ceremony. For us, it was a moment that ranks with the day we were married and the day we first saw our son. As you know I am not Jewish and this was my first Bris and for my husband, the first since his own. We cannot express how much we appreciated your compassion and patience during such an emotional experience. We want you to know how lucky we consider ourselves to be that you served as Mohel at our son Bris. Thanks so much for a wonderful memory!
Sara, Andrew & Reid


Hi Dr. Roberts,

We could not have possibly found a better person to perform the bris for our son then you. There was an instant connection when we first spoke and you and your down to earth manner helped bring a very sacred and special day to new heights with warmth, personality, and philosophy. It was the perfect balance to make the significance of the bris both relatable to everyone and more human instead of cold and formulaic. And while we do have the customs of ceremony, it was a day of celebration for family and new beginnings and that came through loud and clear. Everyone said to us how great of an experience it was.

The day was perfect. Your care for my son was and is excellent not only before and during the bris but the subsequent follow up calls.

You sir, are a mensch for the honor you have bestowed on us and we are grateful for it. Aaron's life will be richer for the experience we had with you. We will happily sing your praises to anyone who will listen.

Russell, Jessica, Rachel and Aaron

Dear Dr. Roberts,
Thank you so much for making Noah’s bris so special. It truly was more than we could have ever expected.
You ran a professionally organized service and took the time to make it personal to us for our friends and family.
Everyone was extremely impressed and entertained- even on the hottest day of the year in a very crowded space. Your preparedness and professionalism made everything run perfectly. Your prep and follow up with us was above and beyond. We feel so blessed we were able to have you as our mohel.
We cannot say enough good things about you. I am excited to recommend you to anyone I know that has a baby boy in the future.
Again, thank you so much- you are truly the best! 
Robyn, Ariel and Noah 

Dr. Roberts,
We wanted to send a quick note expressing our gratitude for all you did to make Andrew & Jack’s bris a memorable occasion for our family. We appreciate the support you and Cindy provided before, throughout, and after the ceremony, and your genuine care and attention to the fact that we are from mixed backgrounds.
We hope our paths cross again in the future, and wish you and your family an enjoyable summer. 
Warm regards,
Charles and Irene

Dr. Roberts,
With great anticipation I was looking forward to attending my very first Bris for my new grandson, Jacob Nino.
I did not know what to expect.  You explained the tradition so thoroughly that it was simple for a newcomer to understand and enjoy the ceremony from start to finish.
I must say you touched my heart.  Jacob Nino was fortunate to have you perform his ceremony.  At the end, I was overwhelmed. It was one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever witnessed. Your enthusiasm, passion and dynamic personality reflected throughout the day and your humor made the day even more joyful. It was a memory I will always treasure.
Thank you for a beautiful day!


Once again I wanted to say Thank You!
As you know, yesterday was a very important day for my family and from the moment Mindy and I had first talked with you we were confident that we had selected the right mohel for Cooper.
Thank you for taking the time to help us select a Jewish name and prepare us for the ceremony as you did. Yesterdays Brit Milah ceremony was absolutely beautiful. The things that you said regarding FAMILY was indeed how we felt. From beginning to end Cooper's Bris was perfect.
Once again… Thank You!!



Dear Rick,
What can I say?  You did it again!!! 
Thank you so much for the most wonderful bris ceremony that any family could ask for.  You put your heart into it and it meant the absolute world to both Craig and I. 
You have such a wonderful way of making everything so special and we will never forget that beautiful day. Thank you for the countless phone sessions and advice regarding the ceremony. 
We really appreciate everything you did to make the day so memorable.
We can't thank you enough.

Love…….Kami, Craig, Chase and Cody

Dr. Roberts,
I just wanted to thank you again for performing the bris for our twin sons.  My wife and I are very appreciative of (and a bit amazed by) how much time you spent with us in advance to both prepare us for the ceremony and to make sure my wife would be comfortable given the fact that we are an interfaith couple. 

I must say that you were very respectful of my wife’s faith and artfully weaved that into the ceremony.  I also want to thank you for conducting both a meaningful and engaging ceremony.  My friends and family all commented on how wonderful it was.  You made a very important day in our sons’ lives very special, and my wife and I are very thankful for that.  Hope you and your family are doing well.



Dear Dr. Roberts,

We want to thank you for attending our son's Brit Milah.
We were extremely moved with the attention that you gave our son and our family. Your sincerity and warmth during the planning and performance of the Brit Milah was greatly appreciated.

At all times you conveyed a sense of trust which gave us full confidence; something we needed at this very important moment in our lives.

We have no doubt that we would have not been able to obtain such professional and compassionate care from another mohel.

Thank you again!


Jack and Bonnie


Dear Dr. Roberts,
It was an honor and pleasure meeting having you officiate this very special moment in our lives. The bris ceremony was everything we hoped it would be.
Len and I knew from the moment we saw you at our friend's bris that you were the one for us! Your caring attitude soothed our son and daughter-n-law's anxiety and lent a beautiful symbolic Jewish ceremony to it's completion with class and dignity.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We hope to see you again in the near future.
Fran and Len
PS You are truly THE ROYAL MOHEL!

It would be my honor to attend your daughter’s Simchat Bat Ceremony.
