    Its sad that it took a well known Philanthropist to announce that he was a victim for JCW to start getting mainstream recognition. Hopefully all of Crown Heights will embrace the mission of saving our kids.

    THIS IS JUST PLAIN AND SIMPLE:
    SAVING LIVES
    SAVING DIGNITY
    DOING IT THE WAY IT NEEDS TO BE DONE
    there are alot of us behind you and the entire world wants this. HaKadosh Boruch Hu wants this. May you all heal, and be blessed, and have optimal success, and may this be the only kiddush HaShem we have to make. This is the right time to be mesiras nefesh on this.

    There is only one way to stop the cycle of abuse that is education. We can make as much noise as we want and scream about abuse from the last 100 years but if we do not educate the children to know what abuse is and if there is a case of abuse that they should report it and get help then we are part of the problem JCW has done much for abuse but they are doing nothing about educating the children at school the people that show up at these events already know about abuse its the children… Read more »

    I never realized how important this organization is until this event or understand just a bit of the feelings that a child of abuse goes through – it is so important for every parent, educator and especially victims to be at this event.

    You will walk away with enough awareness and information to possibly save your childs life and support an organization which willl prevent the atrocities that many of crown heights youth went through

    The information is out there. There are other Jewish frum organizations that provide child safety prevention to parents and schools. The problem is that these organizations are not always welcomed in camps or schools and have to fight just to get people to listen. Check out magenu.org a Brooklyn based child safety program. They are underfunded just as jcw. They did a training workshops by my kids school for the kids, teachers and parents. Every parent should demand that their school or camp have them come train their staff and students. It’s done in a very informative, tznius and age… Read more »

    Unfortunately some institutions still have the motto that if we don’t talk about it then the problem will just go away. Rather than give your child the tools to recognize bad elements and inappropriate behavior around them. There’s no such thing as full proof prevention. But what is important is that kids feel they could trust their parents and communicate with them. The best way to heal is to start talking about it. And the only way that can happen is if we have a transparent and honest community

    The evening was so inspirational, and powerful. I cried most of the time. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience. AMAZING! JCW you are doing great things! Hatzlacha in Brooklyn on Monday night! You’ve got a great lineup!

    This is what it is! Unfortunately there r still Rabbonim in our communities that r protecting the perpetrator by keeping them in their jobs and re- victimizing the victims by doing that and by not acknowledging their pain. All Rabbonim and Mechnachim that are wondering why our children are ” GOING OFF THE DERECH” have to stop and think : WHAT ARE WE DOING TO SHOW OUR KIDS THAT YIDISHKEIT AND TORAH IS A SAFE PLACE!!!!? Start treating the perpetrator as he shud be treated , like a criminal, no matter what his last name is and who he married… Read more »
