Responding to the recent child abduction attempts in Lakewood, Yated Ne’eman in conjunction with the Barry and Harriet Ray Child Safety Awareness Campaign of the Center for Jewish Family Life is sponsoring a coloring contest for kids. The coloring pictures, will be printed in the center of the magazine section and will contain five critical safety messages to empower the children to keep themselves safe. The coloring pictures were adapted by illustrator, Mrs. Tova Leff, from the Center for Jewish Family Life’s/Project YES’ best-selling children’s safety book, “Let’s Stay Safe!” (an ArtScroll/Mesorah publication). All children ages 3 – 8 who color all 5 safety pictures will receive a certificate for a free safety teddy bear. (Official rules appear on page 4 of the Yated Ne’eman’s magazine each week.)
The first coloring picture, teaching children how to respond to stranger-danger, appeared in the Shabbos Nachamu issue of the Yated Ne’eman. If you missed it, you can download it here for your children to color, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email it to you.
JUST FOR PARENTS: Rabbi Yakov Horowitz has also created a special 4 ½ minute safety video to teach parents how to discuss stranger-danger with your children in an easy and comfortable manner.
