My family is not Jewish, and we have a newborn son who will be circumcised for hygienic reasons. We have an Orthodox Mohel coming to our home to perform the circumcision. Is there anything we can do as gentiles to help the Mohel feel more comfortable in our home, or anything we should avoid doing to prevent him from being put in an awkward situation concerning his committments to Orthodox lifestyle guidelines?
