Mark Reiss

A 79-year-old retired physician and classical pianist, is a dedicated intactivist who has made a special contribution within the American Jewish community.

 

Dr. Reiss has been an active proponent of keeping baby boys intact since 1999. Mark serves as the Executive Vice President of Doctors Opposing Circumcision (DOC). He has appeared in TV shows, including Penn & Teller’s “Circumcision is Bullshit!”

 

One of Mark’s most significant contributions has been the creation of a database of “Celebrants of Brit Shalom”—rabbis and other lay Jewish leaders who are willing and able to officiate at non-cutting naming ceremonies for baby boys. Mark also serves as a member of Intact America’s Board of Health Professionals.
