The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life -

a dRuGs and al­co­hol aware­ness train­ing ses­sion in Manch­ester was con­ducted by drugsline founder Rabbi aryeh sufrin and its schools team leader — re­cov­er­ing ad­dict dar­ren Gold — for rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the our Kids men­tor­ing scheme.

our Kids works pri­mar­ily with young peo­ple from the or­tho­dox Manch­ester com­mu­nity who are strug­gling aca­dem­i­cally or so­cially. Rabbi sufrin spoke about the char­ity’s work with Jewish com­mu­ni­ties in Lon­don; break­ing down the taboos sur­round­ing ad­dic­tion and en­sur­ing that those who need sup­port can ac­cess it without shame or em­bar­rass­ment.

Mr Gold gave a can­did ac­count of his life as an ad­dict and the con­se­quences of his drug use. he also gave an in­sight into the tech­niques he has used to com­mu­ni­cate with young audiences.

Pin­chos Bran­deis of our Kids re­ported: “Rabbi sufrin and dar­ren of­fered a re­ally in­ter­est­ing per­spec­tive on how to work with young Jews.”
