The Doctors' Choice
"He ran a great ceremony and was very considerate of special requests we had for our family... the circumcision itself was fast and skillfully done. Rabbi Lawrence's expertise as a mohel was apparent."

A Bris During the Pandemic
What has Changed?
The Pandemic has presented an unprecedented disruption of Jewish Life.
Jewish Law Teaches that safety is the greatest priority and as a result, the Bris ceremony will look a little different.
Social Distancing and Vaccination Status
The Bris must be performed in compliance with CDC guidelines regarding vaccine status and distancing.
Brises can performed either indoors or outdoors to ensure these safety precautions.
All unvaccinated attendees are required to wear a mask for the duration of the ceremony.
The Mohel will be properly masked and gloved both during the procedure and the ceremony.
21st Century Bris
Like many gatherings in this age, in addition to in person guests, you are welcome and encouraged to invite as many people as you'd like to the ceremony via video conference platforms.
