Today’s article will help you learn all about Rabbi Rappaport’s circumcision age limit and how different ages of circumcision require different procedural techniques!
Rabbi Rappaport does have specific guidelines with regards to circumcision cost, which we will share with our readers in today’s article!
Rabbi Avraham Rappaport, a second-generation expert Mohel currently active in the MD/DC/VA area and beyond, is here to answer the can you do a Bris on Shabbat question. Let’s tune into his explanations, corroborated with sacred Jewish texts, and learn if a Shabbat Bris Milah is in any way different from a regular circumcision procedure!
Is circumcision covered by insurance? This question sits on the minds of both parents looking to circumcise their newborn babies and adults who want to rectify a botched circumcision or celebrate their covenant with God. Although the outcome of the circumcision procedure is identical for each of the aforementioned categories, not all circumcision procedures enjoy the same status in the eyes of insurance companies: some judge circumcisions as cosmetic or elective and offer no coverage whatsoever, while others do deduct certain expenses, but some only in a medical setting.
Aside from ignoring their Jewish identity, uncircumcised children will have to deal with a much more complex procedure if they decide to get circumcised at an adult age. Rabbi Rappaport encourages parents to have their babies circumcised even if they want to avoid the ceremony — circumcisions are all about the baby’s well-being and not about the party!
In one of our past articles, we’ve extensively discussed the differences between the primary circumcision techniques: the Mogen clamp, the Gomco clamp, and Plastibell. Today, it is our intention to teach you why Rabbi Rappaport has built his mohel career around the Mogen clamp and why this circumcision technique triumphs over all the other methods. By the end of this article, you will learn everything about Rabbi Rappaport’s technique and your son’s future Bris Milah procedure!

"During nursing school, I observed dozens of circumcisions and Rabbi Rappaport's procedure on our son was the most relaxed and least traumatic one I have ever seen."
"I am happy to recommend Rabbi Avraham Rappaport with whom I have worked jointly with performing complex ritual and non-ritual circumcisions. I am impressed with his professionalism, technical abilities and rabbinic expertise."
“Rabbi Rappaport brought great kindness and warmth to the bris he conducted for our son, Reuben, and the naming ceremony of Reuben’s twin sister, Anabel. The Rabbi’s words contained both wisdom and humor–necessities if you’re embarking upon a journey with twins–and we believe that both children received the best of sendoffs to a rich, happy Jewish life. We’re very lucky that Rabbi Rappaport with his expertise was there to help share in our simchas.”
