If so, what is it, and what does it mean?


wouldn’t that me more like an UNdoohickey?? Sorry… forshame :frowning:

I don’t know the name, but I bet Ronco makes one.

It’s called an “izmel.”

And don’t forget: when it comes to a circumcisions, the rabbi may get paid for the ceremony, but the mohel get all of the tips.
