Calling All Jewish Incest Survivors
INCEST - It's Not Just a Family Affair!
I've been made aware that an issue that is hardly discussed anywhere is the topic of Incest in Jewish communities. I've also noticing most of the cases in the news address the topic of clergy abuse of males (with the exception of the case of Mordecai Tendler).
I was wondering how incest survivors differ from those who were abused by sex offenders outside the home?
We keep hearing about teachers, rabbis, coaches, babysitters who molest, but what about parents? How common is it for a mother to be an offender? Are there cases where a survivor was abused by both parents.
If you are an incest survivor please let us know and what we can do to help.
