Q. At a bris the mohel had a bit of a cold, so he asked someone else present to do the mitzva of metzitza (oral suction of the blood). What should be done then when reciting the Horachaman by the end of birkat hamazon, that reads: “Horachamam Hu Ivarech Hamal Besar Haorlah, Upara, Umatzatz D’mei Hamilah;” that translates as: The Compassionate One, should bless the one who removed the orlah, did the peria and the metzitza of the blood of the milah. Since in truth the mohel did not perform the metzitza?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that he should change that word in the Horachaman, and instead of saying “Umatzatz” or he also did the metzitza, he should say “Vehamotzetz,” namely, “and the one who did the metzitza.”
