-Rabbi Mikey S, UWS NY

"Rabbi Lawrence was an EXCELLENT mohel! Exactly what we were looking for. The bris was during Covid, and Rabbi Lawrence expertly balanced our family needs and what we wanted for the bris, while also making sure to keep everyone safe. He helped to engage the few people we had in person, as well as all of those on zoom, framing the bris ceremony through word and song. He was gentle with our son, and reassuring to those who were nervous. He helped us prepare beforehand, gave us detailed aftercare instructions, and was always available when we had questions. I can't recommend him highly enough!"

Ariel C, UES Manhattan

Rabbi Lawrence performed the bris for our son during the COVID pandemic in 2020. We can attest to the quality and thoughtfulness of Rabbi Lawrence's care rooted in procedural safety protocols, COVID safety protocols, incorporation of song into ritual and a traditionally grounded religious outlook.

Following our initial outreach, Rabbi Lawrence was kind enough to block time on his calendar for a potential bris a month in advance of our anticipated due date. In the weeks leading up to the due date, Rabbi Lawrence speedily replied to our emails and exercised nothing but patience in response to all of our questions. On the day of bris, Rabbi Lawrence did the procedure for our son with care, administered a moving ritual service, and provided clear instructions for post-bris care.

Rabbi Lawrence devotes considerable thoughtfulness and attention to a post-procedural regimen that ensures a child's well-being. We took great comfort in Rabbi Lawrence's clear instructions, and Rabbi Lawrence FaceTimed and phoned us multiple times over the subsequent weeks to ensure recovery proceeded as expected.

Thanks to Rabbi Lawrence, our son had a safe bris, and we will carry the memories of a moving ritual service for a lifetime."

"We highly recommend Rabbi Lawrence for anyone looking for a compassionate, competant and kind mohel! The Rabbi spoke to me at length making me feel very comfortable before my son was born and even changed his plans when my son arrived a month early. We are very grateful for the experience we had!"

Joe L, Greenwich CT

Rabbi Lawrence is the ultimate professional! Prior to the birth of our son, the Rabbi made us feel super comfortable and safe - answering ALL of our questions (especially given our concerns around COVID). During the bris the Rabbi did an amazing job and spoke beautifully to our Zoom attendees. Post bris, the Rabbi has made himself fully accessible to answer all our questions as our son continues to heal. Highly recommend!

-Jacob G, Manhattan

"Wonderful, and he can sing too!"

-Jessica G, Monticello NY

"We are all very pleased with the service Rabbi Lawrence provided for us and our son Jacob. He was very gentle and caring and took his time with Jacob and made us all feel very comfortable we highly would recommend his services and appreciate everything he has done."

Judah I, UWS Manhattan

"Rabbi Lawrence helped me think through every aspect of the ceremony for our twins. We had a bris and a separate ceremony (zeved ha-bat) for our daughter. It was very moving despite the limitations of zoom.

His follow up about the bris in the weeks that followed was comforting in the extreme. Can’t recommend highly enough."

Jenday W, Greenpoint Brooklyn

"Had Bris during covid at the GP Shul and was extremely happy with Rabbi Lawrence's sterile technique and thorough follow up. He was also very responsive with our questions and concerns. The ceremony itself was very special as his gentle spirit enhanced the experience. I would recommend Rabbi Lawrence without hesitation or reservation."

Danielle M, Bronx NY

Rabbi Lawrence performed my twins Brit Milah about two weeks ago, he was very warm and sincere. He came by our house to check both babies, arrived at the location of the Brit to set up before we arrived, stayed with the babies after the ceremony to ensure they were good unlike some mohels that leave immediately after and then came to our house again the day after to check the boys again. He is very professional and sweet and I like that he did everything very sterile and clean. He was very helpful to me via text and phone calls for the first few days after to answer all my crazy worried mother concerns and made me feel extremely comfortable and calm about the healing process. He even called me a few days ago to check up on my boys which I thought was very thoughtful of him. I would recommend him 100% to anyone looking for a nurturing caring mohel. Thank you again rabbi Lawrence

Netanel P, New York, 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. Not only did he meet all of our needs and expectations, but he also showed remarkable poise under the pressure of an unexpected time delay, adding beautiful singing and helpful explanations for our guests while we waited. He provided exceptional care by visiting us and our son before and after the bris, by patiently explaining us the aftercare instructions, and by being available to us for any questions by phone or text. We are so happy with our decision to include Rabbi Lawrence in this momentous occasion in our son’s life!

Rabbi Lawrence was a pleasure to work with! He led the service in a very heartfelt way, showing great care to our baby and family. He was incredible with follow-up instructions as well as answering all our questions, post-bris. We'd strongly recommend using him as he made the day special and the weeks after stress-free.

-Liza L, Bronx NY

"Rabbi Lawrence did a wonderful job at our son's bris and we would highly recommend him to other parents. We held the bris via Zoom, and he was able to make it a warm and inviting event for everyone. (He also followed all Covid-related precautions.) The circumcision itself was done with skill and Rabbi Lawrence gave clear after care instructions and was available for any questions we had."

-Jeff S, Flatbush Brooklyn

Rabbi Lawrence was a pleasure to work with and I'm really glad to have connected with him. I found him to be patient and readily accessible to answer questions/concerns leading up to the bris and in follow up. If you're reading the positive reviews here and visited his website, they're definitely accurate. One can see he is fully invested in being accommodating and making things a success. The bris itself was expertly done and healed great! Rabbi Lawrence ensured that our son had a safe and meaningful bris ceremony. I highly recommend Rabbi Lawrence to anyone looking for a skilled, halachic Mohel that will also be kind and compassionate to all!

Fran S, Brooklyn NY

"Fantastic! I am so happy I found Rabbi Lawrence. We were very pleased with the service he provided for us and our son. He made us feel comfortable and well informed before, during, and after. He was gentle and showed true skill! As a first time mom I had a lot of questions and concerns. Rabbi Lawrence was always available to answer any of my questions and with his experience and naturally calm demeanor, my worries went away. We absolutely recommend him to other parents. Thank you, Rabbi!"

Danielle G, UWS Manhattan

"Rabbi Eliezer Lawrence is an exceptional mohel! Because our son's bris took place during COVID-19, we wanted to be sure that we were doing everything we could to keep ourselves and our newborn safe and healthy. Rabbi Lawrence took the time to speak with us at length prior to the bris, and he made it very clear that both our and his own health and safety were of great importance to him. When the day of the actual bris came, we felt extremely safe and comfortable with Rabbi Lawrence being in our apartment and performing our son's bris.

Not only did Rabbi Lawrence perform our son's bris, he did so with great care and passion. His singing voice is beautiful and his words were beautiful. In terms of technique, Rabbi Lawrence is careful and incredibly thorough. After the bris, he made sure to teach my husband and me how to care for our son so that he healed properly (which he did!).

Thank you, Rabbi Lawrence! If you are looking for a mohel to perform your son's bris, we cannot recommend Rabbi Lawrence enough!"

Liz S, Riverdale Bronx

Rabbi Eliezer Lawrence was a fantastic mohel. He made us feel comfortable and safe, both in terms of the bris and in terms of the precautions he made sure to take during this pandemic. We knew our son was in great hands and Rabbi Lawrence's instructions and support during aftercare were very helpful and he was there for all our post-bris, sleep-deprived questions. He was awesome.

Avigail D, Brooklyn NY

Rabbi Lawrence was incredible as the Mohel for the bris of our son. He was caring, thoughtful and extremely thorough in his approach. He had several phone calls with us to walk us through everything about the process and ensure we had the comfort level we needed. He also made sure to get to know us in advance of the ceremony and incorporate our individual requests and character into the service itself. He is someone we would recommend to anyone.

Mark A, New York, NY

My wife and I wanted to have a small gathering at our apartment and Rabbi Lawrence was perfect. He came to meet with us in person and meet our baby before the actual bris. He was nice, friendly, down to earth, and great about communication.

The bris itself was wonderful and meaningful. He ran a great ceremony and was very considerate of special requests we had for our family. Aside from the ceremony, the circumcision itself was fast and skillfully done. Rabbi Lawrence's expertise as a mohel was apparent.

Even after the ceremony, he remained involved to make sure our son was healing well. Furthermore, he offered his resources in the city to help us get connected to a Jewish community by providing personal recommendations, encouraging us to contact him anytime.

We would highly recommend Rabbi Lawrence if you're looking for a mohel.

Jessie P. New York, NY

We feel so blessed to have found Rabbi Lawrence to act as moyel for our son’s bris...on a yontiv! From our first conversation we felt that we were in good hands and nothing changed that good opinion. He came by our home a few days prior to the bris for a quick visit to check in on our newborn and also did a follow up a few days later. It was really nice to be able to meet him prior to the stressful day of our ceremony and helped put us more at ease. He was accepting of our wishes and worked with our rabbi to perform a beautiful ritual service. 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!
