  2. you also have the opportunity to let your voice be heard when it comes to your children's safety at school!

    We can no longer allow our yeshivos and day schools to cover for teachers and staff that molest or harm children! As parents, it is your responsibility to protect your children! YESHIVOS HAVE SHOWN THAT THEY CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT SELF-POLICE!

    Learn how to protect our children and let yeshivos know that their current policies of covering-up and shutting up are no longer acceptable!

  3. If I may please suggest that since one may select 2 nominees to vote for at one time that your readership vote for another champion for victims of molesters. He works with at risk boys in Our Place of Flatbush and is a longtime member of Hatzoloh. Please, while voting for Vicki also vote for Zvi Gluck. Moderator please add his name to your post.
