90-Year-Old Circumcised in Ukraine

Not long after we read in the Parsha about Avraham Avinu undergoing circumcision at age 99, a 90-year-old Jewish man was circumcised at the Chabad Menorah Center’s clinic in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine.

From Arutz Sheva

Boris Neshderman, a 90-year-old Jew, was circumcised at the Menorah clinic in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine.

The veteran rabbi of the city and Chabad emissary, Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky, told Arutz Sheva that the man is in good condition and is recovering from the operation.

The brit milah was carried out by the chief mohel of Ukraine, Rabbi Yaacov Gaissinovitch.

The Menorah clinic was established in the last year at the initiative of Rabbi Kamenetsky, who has worked in the city of Dnepropetrovsk for decades with the goal of bringing Jews from all over the country closer together.

The clinic is used mainly by elderly Jews who have difficulty receiving treatment at the public clinics throughout Ukraine. The clinic has saved the lives of many Jews since it was opened.
