Beware: The kosher version

The issue of pedophiles in the haredi sector is a sensitive one, yet children must be sensitized. One way to address this challenge is through the use of cartoons and comics. Dozens of comic pamphlets have been distributed in schools and community centers in haredi neighborhoods to help make children aware of the danger. The initiative is led by Tahel, a haredi association for women and children at risk in that sector. The comics reflect a dramatic change in the approach of haredi rabbis and spiritual leaders toward this and other key issues, such as violence in the family and battered woman.
