Rabbi Paysach Krohn is a fifth-generation mohel. At age 21, he was the youngest mohel ever certified by the Brith Milah Board of New York. He performs thousands of religious circumcisions each year.

However, Rabbi Krohn is better known as the author of the bestselling "Maggid" series of books, inspired by the stories of Rabbi Sholom Schwadron (The "Maggid of Jerusalem"). Rabbi Krohn also authored a seminal work on brit milah (religious circumcision).

Rabbi Krohn is a lecturer, sharing stories in the manner of a maggid, and also collecting stories for his speeches and books. He also leads Jewish historical tours throughout Europe, speaking about the rich and vibrant Jewish communities that existed prior to World War II. He documented the first of these trips in his 2007 book, Traveling with the Maggid.
