The investigation by Israel’s new broadcaster captured mentor, Rabbi Eliyahu Asulin, saying on camera that the poorer strata of the population are ‘cannon fodder.’
Inexperienced students of circumcision have been practicing their skills on the babies of the poorest of Israeli society – Ethiopian and Sudanese families – often claiming to be fully-qualified mohels (Jewish ritual circumcisers,) according to a new investigation.
The investigation was conducted by Kan, Israel’s new public broadcasting corporation.
According to the investigation, the initiates are students of Rabbi Eliyahu Asulin of Hadera, a rabbinate-approved mohel with over 30 years’ experience, who is paid thousands of dollars by the students to teach them the trade.
