Lost in the Shuffle: Jewish Survivors of Sexual Victimization
4:30 - 6:00 pm
Until recently the topic of sexual violence in Jewish communities has been too taboo to discuss. This workshop will provide a basic overview of how communities handled allegations in the past, what changes need to be made, and how we can make them. The workshop will encourage a dialogue between workshop participants.
