About Us

Circumcision Resource Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization with the purpose of informing the public and professionals about the practice of male circumcision. Our mission is to raise awareness and facilitate healing. Since 1991, the Center has been a valuable source of male circumcision information for parents and children’s advocates; childbirth educators and allied professionals; medical, mental health, and academic people; Jews; and others.

Our Directors and Professional Advisory Board members consist of researchers and clinicians in the fields of medicine, mental health, and social science. Ronald Goldman, Ph.D., is the Executive Director. We are pleased to have participated in over 200 television, radio, magazine, and newspaper interviews and have contributed to many¬†books, periodicals, and newspapers. We also provide consultation, counseling, and referrals and lectures, seminars, and publications. Also see Dr. Goldman’s speaking program website about other early childhood cultural practices and their effects on individuals and society.

Attitudes toward circumcision are changing because of new awareness. As a result, there is growing concern about this often misunderstood genital surgery. If you are considering circumcision for a child, please take the time read our information. Your child’s physical, sexual, and emotional health depend on your being informed.
