For the second year, we are running a concert to benefit the work of Project YES; a program I started 13 years ago to assist teens at risk with the help of Rabbi Moshe Sherer zt”l and with the backing and encouragement of the members of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah Shlit”a. The concert will be held on Sunday evening, November 15th, 2009 in the Merkin Concert Hall, featuring Avrohom Fried and Cantor Yitzchok Meir Helfgot.
As you can well imagine, the stress of today’s precarious environment is directly affecting the tranquility of many homes in our communities. As a direct result, the phone lines at Project YES have been ringing more than ever as parents seek assistance.
Despite the challenges of increased requests for help, reductions in government funding, and diminished financial support from donors, we are deeply committed to providing life-saving support for the children and families who turn to us for help.
In fact, we will soon be rolling out an exciting new initiative that will generate an exponential increase in the number of children being served by our Teen Mentoring program.
We are partnering with Bnos Agudath Israel, to train Bnos leaders in cities across North America, in partnership with their local schools, to become “big sisters” to the children in their communities.
Please help us help our children by becoming a Concert Sponsor or by contributing to Project YES.
We need your support to continue our life-saving work. It is just that simple.
Now more than ever.
