Presentation in Yiddish:

“Speaking to Your Kids about Personal Safety” is a parenting workshop conducted by Rabbi Yakov Horowitz, Director of The Center for Jewish Family Life’s Project YES and dean of Yeshiva Darchei Noam in Monsey, NY. Part of the Project YES "Keep Our Children Safe" initiative, it was designed to raise awareness among parents in our community about the importance of speaking to our children about safety and personal space.
