By Roberta Rosenberg Farber

Maurice Freedman Research Trust Ltd., 2010

In this exploratory study the author examines available services for Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox or haredi victims of spouse abuse in Jerusalem Israel. These services are compared with those found in her earlier research on social change processes and available services for victims of such spouse abuse in New York City, USA. Ramifications of differences in national shelter policy are identified and examined. Further research is suggested, including an exploration of the relationship between national culture and the delivery of social services.
