His mother was also a descendent of an eminent Moroccan family of rabbis who led Jewish communities in Morocco for several generations and who still have a great influence on the Moroccan community’s decisions and orientations across the world by means of their published writings .
Pinto started teaching courses of Torah in Gaza. He is such an amazing and straight person who studied in Jerusalem where he brought into existence his potentialities. He run his first “Yeshiva” at KIRYAT MALAKHI in Israel and quickly became a leader of the Jewish community in the world. The Rabbi who created a lot of Jewish templates all over the world and who assisted needy families through providing scholarships and books along with food is now staying in US.
