Halacha for the day

It is not the halacha that a Mohel must circumcise his own son before making a Bris for someone else's baby!

Perhaps this was confused by some with the idea that it's better to do your son's bris yourself, since the mitzvah is on the father, and "Mitzvah Bo Yoser M'Bshlucho".

The only reason a Mohel may practically not be doing Brisin if he hasn't made one first on his own son is for the reason I mentioned in the previous post, regarding trust and experience.
