Dear All:

With everything that is going on nowadays, many parents have been asking me if, how, and when to have "The Talk" with their children -- speaking to them about privacy matters and abuse prevention in a manner that is consistent with our values of tzniyus -- before the summer.

I will be addressing this topic this evening, and the issue of supervision of teen children, in light of all that transpired in the Catskills last summer, when I speak in Brooklyn on "Meeting Summer’s Unique Chinuch Challenges" for the Ha'Or Beacon School.

The lecture is open to the public and will begin at 8:00 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, May 27th, 2008 at the Young Israel of Midwood, 1694 Ocean Avenue. The admission is free; there will be separate seating, and light refreshments. A question and answer session will follow my presentation.

Attached, please find links to two columns that I wrote in The Jewish Press, which brought awareness of the wild scene in Monticello, New York last summer, and three Mishpacha columns I've written on abuse.

On a personal note, my wife and I would like to thank the 150+ readers who emailed Mazel Tov wishes to us on the occasion of our son's engagement. Each and every one of them was very much appreciated.

Yakov Horowitz
