About Us

B’Darchei Avosaynu (BDA), literally “in the path of our fathers,” was founded in 2009 in response to the epidemic numbers of teens-at-risk which impact our community.

BDA is comprised of specially trained rabbis, mental health care professionals and volunteers who have joined together to address the struggle that our youth are going through.

Through BDA, many have been able to obtain employment, rehabilitate from addictions, and finally receive the opportunity to seek meaning and ask questions without being mocked, shunned and rejected.

BDA operates under the guidance of its co-founders/directors, Rabbi Yechiel Malik and Mr. Mutty Solomon, LMHC, who work tirelessly on behalf of the youth and families under their auspices.

We all know the problems. We’ve spoken, listened, cried, prayed about them, seemingly ad infinitum. At BDA, we urge you to join us in the struggle and BECOME PART OF THE SOLUTION!
