About Us

rfeldman"There is an international scourge attacking the Jewish People which threatens to tear apart the fabric of Jewish life. It has spared no class of Jews: from teenagers to kollel members, from office workers to rabbis, and from single to married men. "Guard Your Eyes" is actually the only weapon we have at our disposal."

— Rabbi Aharon Feldman, Mo'etzes Gedolei HaTorah of America

rtwerski"I doubt that at any time in our history has there been as grave a threat to the morality of our people and to the stability of the Jewish family. And the only weapon we have against it, the only one, is GuardYourEyes, which is saving lives and families."

— Rabbi Abraham J. Twersky, MD, Founder of Gateway Rehab

Background

The Guard Your Eyes organization (www.guardyoureyes.com) has been relatively unknown until recently, but with the expansion of its efforts and proven success, it is becoming known throughout the Jewish world today as the leading resource for dealing with the prevention and treatment of internet related problems.

Fueled mainly by the accessibility and anonymity of the Internet, this affliction has spared no class of Jews all across the religious spectrum. This widespread problem is destroying more peoples’ marriages and Yidishkeit than almost anything else today. Many of the social ills afflicting the Jewish community today such as youth-at-risk, broken marriages and even child abuse and molestation can be traced back to this issue. Much of our communities’ investments in education today are being undermined by the strong-pull of these temptations.

Prevention

Guard Your Eyes has helped prevent thousands from falling into these pitfalls by providing comprehensive filter services, daily shiurim and chizuk e-mails on Shemiras Einayim, articles and tips, and by boosting awareness of the dangers and giving practical tools on how to avoid these tests. We also have a team of certified computer technicians who offer free help for anyone who wants advice or hands-on assistance with installing filters.

treatmentTreatment

In three years of operations, with a meager yearly budget and minimal advertising, Guard Your Eyes has helped roughly 1,000 Jews get back on a path of sanity, healing and self-control. This has been accomplished through the many features of our network which include a website, forums, handbooks, chizuk e-mails, hotlines and 12 step phone conferences and groups.
