Rabbi Pinto has developed large-scale activities throughout the world. He has yeshivas in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami, among other places, and visits Bulgaria, Argentina and Venezuela, where he also has followers.
HaRav HaMekubal Pinto first came to New York for medical treatment. When the Rav's aides are asked why activity is being concentrated in New York, they reply that New York is a central place in the world and one that can have a considerable impact on Israel's future. The Rav wants to draw American Jewry close to Israel; assimilation is rampant, and there are many people who need advice.
