A crucial facet of this program was that Mrs. Fox and her team did a masterful job of clarifying the mystifying aspect of these sensitive topics in a tactful but unambiguous manner. The beauty of the Safety Kids Program was that important concepts, that have unfortunately become well known, were systematically organized and presented in a clear manner to enable educators and parents to know what to be aware of.” — Rabbi Yisroel Sonnenschein First Grade Rebbe, Yeshiva K’tana Waterbury, CT - Rabbi Yisroel Sonnenschein, First Grade Rebbe, Yeshiva K’tana, Waterbury, CT

"Educating students how to stay safe, providing them the power to stay safe, in a sensitive and nonthreatening manner had evaded us [Jewish Communities]. 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

“Our community’s experience with Magen Yeladim International’s Safety Kid program was remarkable in every way. While the need for a national preventative safety program is an unfortunate sign of the times, nevertheless, it is gratifying that a fabulous program, endorsed by leading Rabbonim and led by nationally acclaimed Mrs. Debbie Fox, has emerged and has already benefitted and impacted some 28,000 children across the globe. 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

Your presentation was delivered in an informative, non-ambiguous, yet refined way. Your multi-pronged approach of incorporating all sectors: educators, parents and students into the project will בע״ה ensure that inroads are finally made into protecting our precious children.” - Rabbi Shmuel Hiller Bnos Bais Yaakov of Far Rockaway, NY
