Project S.A.R.A.H. -- A Domestic Violence Program Eroding Denial in the Orthodox Jewish Community

By Esther East, Elke Stein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2008

The authors discuss Project S.A.R.A.H. (Stop Abusive Relationships At Home), a 12-year-old program which was developed in New Jersey as an organized communal response to the issue of domestic violence within the Orthodox Jewish community. An approach that incorporated community education with improved access to professional services has enabled increasing numbers of Jewish victims to seek and receive help in New Jersey, the authors explain.
