Parental guidance recommended
Jewish Communities are not immune from this despicable crime.
A conference took place this month in Israel, that dealt with ways of eradicating this serious abuse of Jewish children by men but sometimes also women who are perceived to be respected members of Jewish communities around the world.
Hear how survivors of childhood sexual abuse experience an array of overwhelming and intense feelings that may include fear, guilt, and shame. Learning to trust can be extremely difficult.
Walter talks with the founder of Tzedek an advocacy group in Australia.
The subjects range from who the perpetrators are and how they get their victims, to Tzedek’s work and the main points that were discussed at the conference.
The programme begins with what you have been waiting for – the voices and views of students who attend JFS in London, the largest Jewish school in Europe and subject of last week’s programme, talking about whether social intermixing of Shabbat observant and secular Jewish pupils influences their lifestyles.
A revealing programme.
