Bio Information: 
The Rav, a Sanzer chossid was born in the town of Bobov in 1863. His father, Rav Nesanel, the chief rabbi of Maltziv (Malcov), Galicia was among the foremost student of Rebbe Chaim of Sanz, the Divrei Chaim, as well as a member of his Bais Din (rabbinical court). In 1903, due to extreme poverty, he sailed to America and settled on the Lower East Side. The Rav, a master mohel (a performer of ritual circumcisions) is credited with bringing thousands of Jewish children into “Briso Shel Avroham Avinu” (Abrahamic Covenant).
When Rebbe Yitzchok Halberstam, the Bardiover Rebbe came to New York he would only eat at the table of Rav Lauer due to the high standard of kashrus (dietary laws) observed at his house.
