Safety During Covid-19

Your Family's health is my #1 priority.


In strict and continued consultation with Medical and Rabbinic authorities, Rabbi Lawrence ensures the highest standards of precaution to help keep you and your family safe.

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."

-Dr. Mark Abrams M.D., NYC 

Parents Trust Him

“Rabbi Lawrence’s warm demeanor and guidance as well as obvious skill in the procedure itself were clear and our son is doing great! We can’t recommend him more highly! 

-Jessie P, NYC

Netanel P. | Manhattan, NY

"My wife and I were looking for a mohel who would be professional and safety conscious and could also imbue the bris with an atmosphere of spirituality and community. We couldn’t have found a more perfect mohel than Rabbi Lawrence."

Brian D. | Brooklyn, NY

"Rabbi Eliezer is great in every way. The whole family thinks so. Our little boy has healed up so very nicely (and quickly!) and the Rabbi is even still keeping tabs on us to make sure everything is fine and healthy."

Danielle P. |  Bronx, NY

"I would recommend him 100% to anyone looking for a nurturing caring mohel. Thank you again Rabbi Lawrence!"

A Bris During the Pandemic 


What has Changed?

The Novel Corona Virus 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

The Bris must be performed while maintaining social-distances guidelines with all attendees.

Brises can performed either indoors or outdoors to ensure this safety precaution.


Protective Attire

All attendees are required to wear a mask for the duration of the ceremony.

The Mohel will be wearing a face shield, mask, gloves, and appropriate isolation attire.

21st Century Bris

Like many gatherings in this age, you are welcome and encouraged to invite as many people as you'd like to the ceremony via video conference platforms.
