In a short span of six months (Dec 2020 – May 2021), the Our Place family was left heartbroken by the untimely passing of three devoted, long-time staff members – each of whom left their own indelible mark on the lives of hundreds of young men and women.

Rabbi Dovid Silberman

In addition to being a popular Yeshiva Rebbe in the Flatbush community, Rabbi Dovid Silberman spent two decades working with teens and their families to assist in school re-enrollment and placement. When a boy was ready to re-enter the Yeshiva program or there was simply no Yeshiva that seemed suitable, Rabbi Silberman was the address. His tireless efforts and patience ensured that countless students returned to Yeshiva.

Mark Schickler

While his official job title was “facility manager,” Mark was known for his larger-than-life smile and effusive warmth that he shared with each boy who walked through the door. He regularly opened his humble apartment to any Our Place boy in need of a Shabbos, where his Friday night onegs were legendary for going well into the wee hours of the night. His free hugs are irreplaceable.

Joe “Yossie” Yurowitz

For over two decades, Joe was a fixture at both Our Place Boys and The Living Room. Multiple times a week he could be found hanging out in Our Place Boys, shooting pool, or speaking with a young teen. He attended recovery retreats; he lived and breathed Our Place, serving as a confidant to kids, staff members, and board members alike. His selfless dedication and constant advocacy played a vital role in Our Place’s growth from the very beginning. In 2019, shortly before his untimely passing, Joe joined the Our Place Board of Directors.

President Emeritus / Founder

Moshe Binik A'H

As a successful businessman and philanthropist, Moshe Binik dedicated himself to the needs of the community throughout his lifetime. From opening his home to those without one, to establishing discount groceries for families in need, to volunteering as a Hatzolah member, Rabbi Binik was no stranger to acts of kindness.

Moshe Binik served as the first president of Our Place. He has helped thousands of young adults overcome abuse and trauma and find a place in the community.

Although Rabbi Binik was involved in many other charity projects, he always dedicated himself to providing for Our Place and supporting its meaningful, life-changing mission.
