The surgeon who reattached John Wayne Bobbitt’s severed penis made aliyah. Dr. David Berman of Potomac, Md., made aliyah last week with his wife and four sons as part of the large-scale Nefesh B’Nefesh immigration, the Jerusalem Post reported. Lorena Bobbitt made national headlines in 1993 when she emasculated her husband, accusing him of infidelity and abuse. Bobbitt subsequently proved Berman’s skill as a doctor when he performed in pornographic films after his surgery.
