Did you know that 26% of women and 17% of men in the Jewish Community are victims of Domestic Abuse?
1 in 3 women experience sexual assault or domestic violence at some point in their lives and 1 in 6 men experience sexual abuse before the age of 18.65% of victims who come forward say no one tried to help them.
Domestic violence and abuse affects millions and is often not what you think it is. It can be withholding money, dictating religious observances, it can be controlling behaviors, put-downs, stalking or belitting someone so they feel worthless. And yes, it can be a threat to hurt or kill.
