The recent news reports about Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, the founder of ZAKA, have been extremely jarring: Meshi-Zahav, a hero to many throughout Israel, stands accused of many counts of sexual abuse. How can we use this as a teachable moment for our children? How should we deal with the prospect of another presumptive role model being revealed as something very different? And how do we balance teaching our children to be careful without frightening them?
Rabbi Yakov Horowitz responds to these issues, and also explains the four basic rules of child safety that every parent and child needs to know. Please listen and share this widely, the message is as important as ever.
