Rabbi Henesch primarily serves Washington, D.C., New York, Virginia and Maryland. He is available nationwide and has performed services overseas as well.
Rabbi Henesch was formally certified as a Mohel in Jerusalem by Rabbi Yitzchok Lang and interned at Hadassah and Laniado-Sanz Medical Center in Israel. He is a practicing Mohel at both Sinai Hospital and Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore as well as hospitals in Columbia, Washington D.C., Virginia and New York. He is associated with the major urology groups in the area and is referred to patients by leading pediatricians and obstetricians whose own children and grandchildren he has been privileged to serve. As a Rabbi, he has lectured on the medical and religious aspects of ritual circumcision throughout the country for Jews of all denominations and has made himself available as a resource to countless families in areas of Jewish life and tradition.
