Israel's Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi David Lau chaired a special conference Wednesday, bringing mohalim from across Israel to renew their licenses to practice at a special refresher course.

Rabbi Lau called on all parents to only opt for a mohel in possession of a valid license, to ensure the brit (circumcision) is carried out in a professional, safe fashion.

Arutz Sheva spoke to Health Ministry inspector Dr. Moshe Wostreich, himself a practicing mohel, to hear more about what it takes to be a qualified mohel in Israel.
