I've noticed lately, that on these forums there is a big push on getting GYE exposure from the "yeshivshe" media and Rabonim (lehavdil).  I acknowledge that this is very important, however is there an emphasis to publicize GYE to the more modern circles as well, where these problems must exist as well?


hey i live in that world

some people are finally admitting

yeah i do know how to turn the thing on

Dear Stuart,

The timing of your question is unreal!

See rehab-my-site.com/guardureyes/forum/index.php?topic=1742.0


Yes I saw and thats was probably prompted my question.  Yasher koyach for that.  What about the media publications?


B'Ezras Hashem, it's only a matter of time (all right - it's also a matter of money! )

It will help, IY"H, if we can get this next letter of support.

Ok so i was passing a magazine rack here in the holyland and i saw the mishpacha and i saw Dr Phillip Rosenthal on the cover. Noticed the headine. Looks interesting. Didnt have any change on me to buy it, so it will have to wait till i do my shabbos shopping i guess.

Had a read of the article and was not that impressed with GYE's exposure.  There was no indication that there is a web site out there to assist frum people in trouble, just a mention that adults shoud use the "GYE program".

I don't mean to sound negative, but I guess we have to realize its a a first step

Try this everybody. Do a google search for anything an addict may use, to find us. Then scroll to the verry bottom of the page, where it gives you the option of adding a site. Then add both GYE websites, and the forum.   

I did it. and also linked it to 'Mishpacha internet' so that should help us!

The article is a very good start.  It addresses very well the dangers that our children face.  But much more needs to be acknowledged, such as the adults who have fallen into this addiction (the article addresses this point only briefly), and what a person can do once he is addicted.

I would like to take this oppurtunity to personally thank Mishpacha for all that they do for our frum jewish reading world. Thanks Mishapacha. Also thanks for not mentioning anything about GYE. It would of been me'orer me to hirhurim and we would never want such a terrible thing to happen would we. OH and also thanks for writing the words guard your eyes in 3 different words so this way i would have no idea what the heck your talking about. You know because if i would, i might check out the website, if you know waht that is, and might get hirhurim again by checking out all that goes on there. So once again thanks mishpacha nad i wish you much success in your battle to keep your eyes closed to whatever is really gpoing on in the world. Hey i guess were in the same boat, both trying to keep our eyes closed!!!

IMT,

If you Google "Guard Your Eyes," the GYE homepage comes up first.

We have some new big ideas on how to get GuardYourEyes into the limelight of the religious world's consciousness without making people squirm anymore. I am meeting on Thursday Iy"h with someone here in Israel who can help us hopefully in a big way. Hint: It may involve a slight "dressing up" (as in a Purim costume) of the activities of GuardYourEyes in a more "parve" looking way that everyone can relate to (and nod their 'holy' heads to, in somber agreement). Such as: "Warning of the dangers of Technology" - "Filter Division - with filter gabai'im, hotlines for filter advice, etc.." - A Prevention Department, which spreads awareness and provides practical tools for "treatment" to Rabbanim and Mechanchim... etc... And as a side note, we also "help those who fell in" with loads of practical tools and ground-breaking features and services... wink wink. (Even the handbooks can be "dressed up" to be called "Prevention manuals for Mechanchim", bla bla...)

In this way, we can start to spread the word in a MUCH bigger way - and also get bigger financial backing hopefully (since people will be more "honored" to support this - and not feel uncomfortable as being "labeled" as someone who understands the problem a little "too well"), and all the chareidi newspapers, radio stations , etc... will be calling us for interviews and ads, since this is one of the biggest issues facing klal yisrael today... Hopefully it will become something like the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation... Just like "shmiras Halashon" and "Guard Your Tongue", hopefully "shmiras ainayim" and "Guard Your Eyes" will become household names - (halacha a day of shmiras halashon ring a bell? ). We'll put out books on "general shmiras aiynaim issues", including the halachos, and hundreds of tips and stories, etc... And as a 'side note'  , we'll also have a department for dealing with the more "serious" cases. Now we all know that this is not a "side-note", but the main thing we do - and it will continue to be the main thing. But it will be "dressed up" in a new way to the general public  

What do you guys think?

GYE not adresses the population od ADDICTS

why not make it adress every single yid!!!!!!!    100%.  And you said RAGE was thinking too big wit his ideas.

You are yotzei so much at once! Now we just need a "posterboy". Someone in chinuch to spearhead the 'family freindly' GYE Heritage Foundation.  And they will send everyone who needs it to  GYE for addicts. In truth, even for an SA site, this place is almost sqeaky clean, and had very little of an issue about causing hirhurim.

GO for it!!!
