Founded in 1979, Bris Avrohom has continuously seen to the needs of Russian Jewish Immigrants. Every need - from finding a home and a job...to performing a bris or bar Mitzvah ...or a Jewsh Wedding to improving the spritual and educational intrests of the Russian Jewish community is taken care through Bris Avrohom.
Bris Avrohom, is the name of our organazation, so chosen by the Lubavitcher Rebbe because it means "The Covinent of Abraham". Avrohom Avinu, our first forefather, was the first Jew to make a bris.
