Move The Needle

Help Us Help You

The shortest response to the question people often ask me, “So; what exactly does Project YES do?” is that we do our very best to move the needle (make meaningful change) on the real issues and challenges that our kids face.

In lieu of an annual fundraiser, we at Project YES/The Center for Jewish Family Life use our email list and this website at the end of each calendar year to ask you to kindly consider supporting our life-saving work in order that 100% of your hard-earned gift goes to sustain our projects.

If you have benefited from our initiatives, the content of this website, our free child safety videos, parenting classes, teleconferences or audio posts, or if you have a daughter who participates in our One on One Program, please help us keep our children safe, secure, and on the road to productive, meaningful lives by making a gift online HERE or by mailing a check to “Project YES” to our office at 56 Briarcliff Drive, Monsey NY 10952.

Over the past few years, the support of our donors has helped us “move the needle” of the critical issue of child/safety in ways unimaginable even a few years ago. Our Karasick Child Safety Initiative has conducted over 100 child safety training sessions reaching countless thousands of Jewish parents and educators worldwide in the past few years. Our Child Safety Book is now in over 25,000 Jewish homes.

With your continued support, we will be publishing the Yiddish version of our safety book this year, and start working on the Ivrit edition – helping us keep far more Jewish children safe and secure.

The first two chumash workbooks in our Bright Beginnings Curricular Initiative are helping Jewish boys and girls worldwide gain the critical Hebrew language skills to become independent, self-confident learners. Our first chumash workbook in being prepared for its second printing and we are in the process of converting our beginner gemara program, from the black-and-white worksheets we developed in Yeshiva Darchei Noam over the past ten years, into a beautiful, user-friendly, updated colorful textbook.

Your financial support will also help us “move the needle” with an ambitious project we've been working on for some time – a brand new interactive website to help you and your family easily access personalized, expert advice on a host of parenting and chinuch matters.

Thanks for considering our request, and please accept our deepest thanks in advance.
