Magen Yeladim International has not only solved this riddle, they have created a viable program that has empowered our community to continue to educate our parents and youth long after they leave. The Safety Kid curriculum is bright, friendly and culturally appropriate.
As a host-school administrator and observer in the classrooms, I was impressed with every aspect of the training process and though we have quite an assertive student and parent body, I have only heard positive reports from them as well." - Rabbi Ilan Heifetz, M.Ed, Director of General Studies, Cheder Lubavitch Hebrew Day School, Skokie, IL

The program was presented to our parents, faculty, and students in a dignified, professional, appropriate and culturally sensitive manner and was truly well accepted by one and all.” - Rabbi Simcha Dessler Menahel, Educational Director, Hebrew Academy of Cleveland
