I received an email about a very important workshop being held on Wednesday, October 14th on the subject "How To Protect Our Children." It is being held at Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun (125 E. 85th Street on the corner of Lexington) at 7:30 PM and is sponsored by the Sisterhood of Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun and the Sisterhood of Congregation Orach Chaim.
From the flier:
"Sexual abuse and domestic violence are issues that even the Orthodox community faces today. Learning how to recognize the signs, and what to do if you suspect someone is being harmed, are among the topics to be covered at this workshop. Funding for this lecture is provided by the UJA Federation of New York Commission on the Jewish People.
The workshop will introduce The Mount Sinai Savi Takanot Project and Beth Israel's Victim Services Program's SOVRI Helpline to the community population. It will include a panel of experts in this field from both hospitals who will proved answers to concerns and questions.

Again, the information is:
