Every once in a while I Google the terms Jewish "sexual abuse", Jewish "sexual assault, Jewish "incest", rabbi "sexual abuse", rabbi "sexual assault", Jewish "clergy sexual abuse". I do this because I am curious what types of resources are out there.
When The Awareness Center was just getting started and I would Google those terms, I would find it was quite upsetting to see that the only things that came up were porn and anti-Semitic sites. I remember sending out calls to action for everyone to contact Google to have them remove these sorts of sites.
Today when a Jewish survivor of sex crimes googles those terms they now able to find resources that could be helpful to them.
Please help support our efforts of ending sex crimes in Jewish communities. We can't do this kind of work without your financial support. You can go to our home page and click on the link to paypal to make a donation or send your check to the address below. Remember all donations are tax exempt.
