Close to 250 men and women from the greater Monsey Chabad community, including numerous Shluchim and a contingent from Morristown, gathered in Monsey last night for “An Evening of Awareness” dedicated to making parents aware of the inherent dangers that come along with many chabad sites that our children may be exposed to.
The event, which took place at the Tzemach Tzedek shul, was sponsored by the three Chabad educational institutions in Monsey; Cheder Chabad of Monsey, Monsey Beis Chaya Mushka High School for Girls and Yeshivas Menachem Mendel Lubavitch of Monsey.
The evening began with a short video clip of the Rebbe speaking about the importance of strengthening the mitzvah of exposing those who are untznius especially during the summer season.
Following the video, Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman, Dean of Cheder Chabad, who acted as MC, introduced the Rav of Tzemach Tzedek, Rabbi Boruch D. Lesches, Rabbi Chaim D. Kagan, Dean of Monsey Beis Chaya Mushka and Rabbi Zalmen Leib Markowitz, a longtime leader in the Monsey community who also serves as an Educational Consultant for Merkos. All spoke inspiringly of the challenging but vital task of maintaining an environment of Kedusha at home and ensuring that our children receive the same consistent messages from both home and school “not to go to Chabad sites”.
The main speaker of the evening was Mr. Philip Rosenthal, a former Computer Forensic Investigator for the Crown Heights Jewish Community Counsel and world renowned expert on computer and internet safety.
Mr. Rosenthal gave a powerful 2 hour presentation highlighting the potential mental, physical and of course spiritual hazards that most Chabad sites have. His overall message included many tips on how to protect your children, and yourself, as much as possible through filters (i.e. k9webprotection.com) and monitoring software (i.e.eblaster.com) but most importantly by strengthening your relationship with your children, and belittling those who report for the sites and those who dress untznius. The presentation was followed by a question and answer session.

Thanks to Rabbi Kagan, Rabbi Wolowik and Mrs. Rosenbluh for organizing a truly inspiring event!
