Inspiration for the Nation with Yaakov Langer

Jun 25, 2022

At the age of 3, Yakov Horowitz lost his father.

After many years of teaching, he wrote a 4,500 word essay in The Jewish Observer titled “An Ounce of Prevention” on the subject of at-risk teens in the community. The article shocked the Orthodox community and led to an invitation to address the 1996 National Conventions of Agudath Israel of America and Torah Umesorah. It also led to the founding of Project Y.E.S. in 1997, which he is the director.

In 1997, Horowitz founded Yeshiva Darchei Noam of Monsey, a child-centered yeshiva, and published Bright Beginnings Chumash and Gemara workbooks that are currently used in over 100 schools. He authored two books on chinuch and parenting and is a regular columnist for The Jewish Press and Mispacha on topics including mental health, social problems, internet usage and child safety. In partnership with ArtScroll, he published a groundbreaking child safety book "Let's Stay Safe,” that is in over 130,000 homes in 3 languages. Horowitz uses social media to warn about sex offenders within the Jewish community and how to avoid them.

He recently launched a campaign to get a copy of the safety books in every home, learn more here

PLEASE NOTE: The goal of this show is to help people find themselves and get more connected to Hashem. There was a particular moment, where Yitzie was expressing some of his struggles and thoughts that we wish we could've addressed more and explored. Torah study is of the highest regard to us. Maybe we'll do a full episode about the importance and incredible holiness of the Talmud.
