So Many Important Causes Before Yom Kippur



If you’re like me, your email inbox and voicemail are filled with dozens of requests for many important causes.

Yet there are some causes that are like a meis mitzvah. GuardYourEyes is one of them.

No one really wants to touch the shmutz problem with a 10-foot pole and there is simply no other organization dealing with this rampant issue.

When it comes to a meis mitzah, the Torah teaches us to drop everything and get the job done
(Shulchan Aruch Yoreh De’ah 374:1).

GuardYourEyes is an organization which helps people whose lives were turned upside-down by one of the fastest-growing addictions in our community — the addiction to shmutz.

It’s a problem that’s extremely widespread and devastating tens of thousands of families of mainstream frum Jews. In some cases, it leads to divorce. In others, people suffer in silence, torturously living a double life. And in many cases their behaviour has reached the clinical level of addiction and they are unable to break-free on their own.
