Welcome to the new blog that is for and about Jewish Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Survivors of Sexual Assault, and Rabbinical Sexual Misconduct. I'm hoping this blog will offer a space for survivors like my self to discuss various issues. If you have ideas of topics to discuss please post them in the comment section of this posting.

I think the first item on my list is to rate how our various communities are dealing with allegations when they are made?

If you went to a rabbi was he or she helpful?

Over the years I've gone to several rabbis trying to get a better understanding from a Jewish perspective of why I was abused. It's been a long and difficult journey but I finally found one that is working with me in trying to understand.

It's been really hard. So many rabbis made me feel like I was to blame for being an incest survivor. They looked at me like I was mentally ill, instead of someone who was a victim of a violent crime. I really wish that all rabbis would take the time out and read at least the book by Ellen Bass and Laura Davis called "The Courage to Heal".
