Domestic Violence and the Jewish Community: The Literature Expands

By Carol Goodman Kaufman

Indiana University Press, Fall 2010

In the past decade, we have seen progress, albeit slow, in our communal struggle against abuse in the home. More people are acknowledging that violence does indeed occur in Jewish homes. More Jewish women are feeling empowered to come forward and seek help. Rabbis are reporting that they have attended workshops and panels on the subject, and communities have established committees to address the problem. And, publications that address domestic violence in the Jewish community have been filling library shelves.
