Beth El’s Child Safety Committee is focused on implementing best practices to safeguard the children in our community. This project reflects our most critical of Jewish values, which is to create safe spaces in which our children can thrive. The committee is currently participating in the Aleinu Campaign, a program administered by Sacred Spaces, which provides Jewish youth-serving organizations with the education and tools necessary to prevent child maltreatment and to take responsible action should instances of abuse emerge. In addition to Beth El staff, we are fortunate to have members of our community on the committee who are psychologists, medical professionals, and educators. This team of staff and lay leaders is committed to offering their expertise in order to ensure that our community is following best practices when it comes to safeguarding the children of our community. We will communicate transparently with the congregation throughout this process.

We will keep the community apprised of the important work of this committee as it progresses.
