Women as Mohels: Responsa in a Moment

Here's an interesting new responsum by Rabbi David Golinkin,
MAY WOMEN SERVE AS MOHALOT?. Rabbi Golinkin always uses these questions as opportunties to demonstrate his vast knowledge of the historical development of Jewish law. For scholar and lay person alike, it is a fascinating journey into the breadth and depth of Jewish civilization. He is never wedded to old customs but is always seeking the response that works best for our times.

To "cut" to the chase, yes, they may.
