Go Yossi Popack!

This is the way all philanthropists should work. Find out what is going on and make a personal decision of how things can be made better.

Yossi Popack is a real do-er and a real person. He gives tzedaka and he means it.

fixing foundation would make sense
why wait till kids walk away? and please do not call it al taharas kodesh when kids do not spell or calculate in any language at the age of 10yoIII . And how do you calculate 10%?

I love it someone who can help… HELPING
May we all have the koach to start listening without assuming. Smartest move one can make is to ask the sources what they feel went wrong. It often begins with a small thing that is not dealt with or is shunned and therefore becomes big leading to dropouts…. ECT. Been there, done that, wish I could’ve changed some things.
Thank you!

This makes me so happy….wish this was done years ago before so many went off the derach, but yashar koach to Mr. Popack that he took the time to focus on what’s REALLY needed in this community. Now lets see who joins him as this endeavor require more than one person’s’ time and resources. And please also keep in mind our girls.

Seriously?

Seriously?

Money. To the parents. More schools. Less crowded schools. More competition between schools.

Cracks in education? Overcrowded schools that need not at all take into consideration parental satisfaction. Further, Schools that must cater only to parents who can pay and not to parents who in-line with their Mission. We need competitive variety. The system is simply starved for resources.

What stands out-

What stands out-

is how much these boys appreciate and crave someone to listen to them! That should tell us all a lot about what needs to be done help them.

Concerned people asked my son years ago, what needs to be fixed. he gave a simple answer: students should be treated the way shluchim treat newcomers.

ask the girls as well,

parents

parents need to accept the fact that their children don’t all fit
into the same system.” Different strokes for different fo lks”.
There are different yeshivas offering more secular studies etc.
However, many parents want to be part of the”elite society”
and only send their children to Oholei Torah or Lubavitcher Yeshiva. Even if they have ten sons they expect each one to fit into the mold. Educating BEFORE their kids go off the derech is a priority Also parent should make paying tuition
a priority.

keep on kidding yourself, that type of therapy lasts all of a few minutes once they walk out of the place. the very next day life resumed for these young men as it was beofre, nothing changed.
