What Organizations Are Saying

Aleinu provided our committee with the tools and expert guidance needed to feel confident engaging with the important work of keeping kids safe. We are able to work through the Best Practices at our own pace, and in line with our community’s unique culture. Aaron Steinberg, Hebrew Institute of White Plains
Aleinu is a unique and critical resource for New York Jewish organizations, helping them not only meet their critical missions but also meet the standards of safety for our most precious community members — our children. Adina Frydman, UJA-Federation of New York
We've gone from a congregation that hoped that things would be okay with our kids, to a congregation that really thinks about what it means to make this an okay place for kids. Rabbi Barry Dov Katz, Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel of Riverdale
