Brit Yosef Yitzchak is more than a network of Mohalim conducting Brit Milah. We are the only organization in the world that provides cultural, customized and financial support to individuals, families, communities and organizations undergoing, involved in, or associated with all aspects of this necessary Mitzvah. We provide this support on a global level. Participants donít need to come to us, we go to them.
Brit Yosef Yitzchak also supplies educational pamphlets and materials in many languages to help participants understand the procedure and Mitzvah. Adults who undergo a bris are reconnected with their Jewish Heritage. During this reawakening we supply religious articles including prayer books, Tefillin, prayer shawls/ Tallit, festival products such as Matzah and Haggadas for Passover, and Menorahs for Chanukah all free of charge.
According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, there are some 250,000 uncircumcised Jews living in Israel. We estimate more than that in the United States, and many times that number in Russia and the surrounding nations. It is these areas where the bulk of Britot take place. Currently most referrals are done through religious leaders and word of mouth, which is extremely limiting. It is essential to advertise on a global level in order to reach uncircumcised Jews in every nation.
Brit Yosef Yitzchak has circumcised over 29,000 Jews during the past 16 years -- not including infants, of which there have been more than 10,000. The average annual increase in circumcisions is 25 Ė 35 %. This growth is predominantly due to more generous sponsorships, increased number of volunteers, and our expanding global network.
