As a Jew, an Israeli, a veteran and a firearms instructor, I'm surprised that I've never heard of Mel Bernstein. I'm glad to know of his existence and I wish he and his museum/business many more years of nachas and mazal.

Is there nothing rich and privileged kids from CC can't do? All this philanthropy - thank goodness these charitable givers are investing in the right people- rich white CC kids. Great for our local community
My bipolar child was at Devereux Cleo Wallace and suffered greatly from staff who would deliberately antagonize the children, cause them to be upset, then restrain them and lock them in a small room. Staff threatened to retaliate against my son if he kept complaining. I finally pulled him out before he became the next statistic. My report to CPS was not even the only one - someone else had reported abuse to him a week before I did. Horrifying. Stay away from this place. I pray every day for the poor souls still locked in there, because staff and police don't believe them.
As someone who knew older brother from outside view, he should have been allowed to stay. I care about standards, but Kwateng and his younger brother should both still be here. AFA is not a joke and I have seen enough criticisms from people who are clueless just because of criticisms they hear from those who are here. We are changing this place for the better, but baseless criticisms like that slow us down. Yes, some things likely happened that were wrong and they were wrongfully dismissed, but don't exaggerate how bad the whole institution is!
