I am Ronald Goldman, Ph.D. (psychology), educator, author, and Executive Director of the Circumcision Resource Center. We advise against circumcision because it is physically, sexually, and psychologically harmful. AMA
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.
I am the author of Circumcision: The Hidden Trauma and Questioning Circumcision: A Jewish Perspective. The first book, with a foreword by renowned anthropologist Ashley Montagu, is endorsed by dozens of professionals in mental health, medicine, and social science. The book addressing Jewish concerns is endorsed by five rabbis among others.
I have participated in over 200 media interviews and have contributed to many publications. My last article was in the Wall Street Journal. I also provide consultation, counseling, referrals, lectures, and seminars about circumcision.
Circumcision is a complex issue. In order to answer more questions (I’m a slow typist), I will try to make my responses concise and add a link where appropriate for those who seek more information.
