TO ERADICATE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN THE JEWISH COMMUNITY.
We strive to create effective, culturally-based strategies to improve Jewish community accountability and response to domestic violence.
We strengthen the future of our community by teaching our youth, adults, and community leaders to respond when violence occurs.
Our goals are to support and advocate on behalf of Jewish battered women and their children; to educate the Jewish community and its leadership about domestic violence; to empower Jewish youth with the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy relationship choices; to organize effective abuse prevention and intervention strategies; and to improve Jewish womens access to domestic violence services.
