Please join us on The Zev Brenner Radio Show this Motzei Shabbos for a practical discussion designed to help you select the right high school for your child. While the show will be beneficial for parents of all children, there will be specific emphasis on helping you place your "Square Peg" child, meaning one for whom the traditional high school is in all likelihood not a perfect fit. -->

As a community service, The Center for Jewish Life/Project YES purchased an hour of air time from The Zev Brenner Radio Show - from 12:00 midnight to 1:00 a.m. Eastern Time this Motzoei Shabbos, April 18th - so the program can run uninterrupted, commercial free.

I will be hosting the program and will be joined by experts in the field - including senior people in "Square Peg" mainstream Yeshivos and a Brooklyn father/grandfather who has donated thousands of hours over the past decade successfully placing hundreds of our precious children in high schools. -->

We very strongly encourage parents of 7th graders to tune in as well so you can properly prepare for next year's high school application process.

Please join us live by tuning in to WMCA 570 AM in the NYC area and WJPR 1640 1640 AM in the Highland Park/Edison NJ area or you can stream live at

Feel free to email questions you may wish to have addressed on the program to before Shabbos.

Best wishes for a Gutten Shabbos, and we look forward to enlightening you on Motzoei Shabbos.

Yakov Horowitz

The Center for Jewish Life/Project YES will be partnering with Kav L'Noar Center for Families and Young Adults to conduct free child safety/abuse prevention classes open to the public in several communities in Eretz Yisroel from Sunday - Wednesday April 26-29.

We will use this email list to post a schedule of the child safety/abuse prevention classes in Eretz Yisroel so readers from outside those areas will be able to attend.

It is our hope that these workshops will give you the tools and language to help keep your children and grandchildren safe and secure.
