L’Asurim is a non-for-profit organization that is dedicated to serving the Jewish community in preventing and reducing crime, as well as helping the incarcerated do their time and rehabilitate so that they can again become part of society.
Prevention: First and foremost our emphasis is to educate the orthodox Jewish community in the laws and responsibilities that come with living in this great country, thereby helping to reduce crime through education. This is done through seminars, awareness events and video presentations organized periodically in major orthodox Jewish communities.
Supporting Those Indicted: In the unfortunate event of an arrest, our mission is to help the indicted with support and advice, transportation to and from court, organized prayers for their welfare, preparation for serving time in prison and very importantly, providing support to the family who is going through this emotionally-draining ordeal.
Supporting Prisoners: We offer support to those already in prison and to their loved ones. To those incarcerated we provide correspondence, clergy visitors, visits by family and friends, books, religious articles and care packages. To the families of prisoners we offer transportation to and from the prisons and we run support groups to help them get through this ordeal. We also organize prayers to be said for prisoners and their loved ones.
