Debbie Fox Talks with 5 Towns Jewish Times on Her Hopes for Seminary Savvy

Journalist Ronit Dorfman of 5 Towns Jewish Times interviewed Magen Yeladim Child Safety Institute founder and Seminary Savvy author Debbie Fox, LCSW, about her new book. Debbie candidly shares her inspirations for writing the book, how it fits into her mission of helping Jewish children grow up in safety. This latest, much-lauded effort continues to empower and educated children, parents, educators and community leaders to create that safety net when girls are perhaps most vulnerable, far from home and on their own for the first time.

Writing the book was an education for Ms. Fox, as well. As she tells Ronit Dorfman:

One very important message I learned in the writing process is that we don’t communicate openly enough with our children about important topics. Post-seminary girls who read pre-print versions of the book said they wished their parents had discussed these issues. What was inspiring for me, however, was seeing how open and forthcoming people became upon hearing about my project. Girls, parents, educators—they all showed a real willingness to broach sensitive issues and create a forum for conversation. Their stories form the basis of the book. - Debbie Fox, LCSW
