  1. Great presentation!

    How about a hotline that people/parents/teenagers can call if they need to privately report an issue?

    How about going to each school and giving a presentation to all the faculty that putting your hand on a kid is unacceptable? Seems that many are still unaware and doing these possibly innocuous things.

  2. Tzvi Gluck and his staff must be applauded for doing such work! There are many many things Tzvi could be doing with his extraordinary talents yet he chose this difficult field for the betterment of the Klal. Gd bless him and the Amudim team for doing us all this incredible service!

  3. #4 I wonder why you say “putting your hand on a kid is unacceptable” to all faculty members. Example – a 5 year old hurts him/her self. Do you think if would acceptable for the school NOT to put their hand on the child?
    Everything in life is nuanced and needs some Sechel

  4. Hi
    I’ve been abused by someone very close to me. He abused me for a very long time. I can not say enough how true every word that Dr. Akiva Perlman was saying last night about all the pain that the victims go through. I was sitting at home watching the program from my computer and was just crying through his whole speech.
    I have been through many therapists and doctors over the last six years and was never able to disclose anything about my story. All the pain, All the shame, all the GUILT that comes along with being a victim was way too much to bring up in therapy. I thought it was all my fault and am a very bad person for allowing this whole thing to happen to me.

    It was at one session a few months ago, more than ten years after my story that I finally built up the courage to say something. It wasn’t easy at all. And it’s still not easy but I’m trying my best.
    If anyone would look at me they would see a nice happy and talented man. Always smiling and cheerful but inside I have a dark deep and empty hole that I have to fill up. Inside that whole was my dark deep secret but now that I removed the secret I still have the hole. I sometimes feel like a walking shell with a nice handsome outside and a cold empty inside.
    B”H I see myself growing and healing but it’s a long process Especially being that I went through a tremendous amount of emotional abuse as a child besides for my other abuse.
    The purpose of my writing this is to plead with anyone that went through any abuse, Please please find someone to talk to about it. Find someone out there to unload and please don’t keep it inside even another day. It’s too much pain for you to hold alone.

    I’d also like to thank Amudim for all that they do. It’s a amazing organization that does amazing thing!!
