You can find Reshet‘s Safeguarding Position paper below, as well as some kind words below from Shirley Maginley from the NSPCC:
“Congratulations on the launch of the position paper.
I was so impressed with the booklet that I gave it to our NSPCC child protection Library so it could be catalogued and shared with others.
I feel that so much has moved forward with safeguarding in the Jewish community to what it was three years ago. This is partly due to Reshet’s persistence in encouraging the community to improve safeguarding. Let’s continue to work together when the opportunity arises.”

The measures in place should be proportionate to the size of the charity and the risks arising from the charity’s activities.
What’s it all about? When is it? And much more from Shelley :).
The Israeli Dance Institute (IDI) has produced (with the support of the Children’s Aid committee and UJIA) a toolkit of materials to promote Israeli dance with Israel 70 in mind.
The short films clearly explain the moves to each piece of music so they are easy to learn. There is also material from very easy (level 1) to more complicated (level 5) which should provide access for all your chanichim/students. The material is aimed at ages 12-18 but older people can also use the material. There are 18 dances in total so far.
There is no fee for youth movements supported by UJIA – others only have to pay £18 for access after your registration is approved. You will receive MP3 files for the music, PDFs of the dance notation and a list of video links to watch the training. As sheet music becomes available you will be sent it.
You can also ask the IDI to send you a teacher to provide some initial help.
So all you have to do to benefit from this unique resource is to visit: www.idi.org.uk and click on the YOUTH tab.
Fantastic resources are hard to find. The Kohelet Prize is an award given to Jewish educators who have developed programmes of the highest calibre. Those programmes are shared here. Read through and adapt the work to suit your purpose.
If you would like to share your materials with other educators in the field by posting them on the Reshet website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
