Domestic abuse thrives on closed doors, secrecy and isolation, and the COVID pandemic has created conditions that can put women at much greater risk. This session will show a snapshot of domestic abuse in the Jewish community, show you what might be happening behind closed doors under normal circumstances, how COVID is making that so much worse, what clues you might get that it’s happening and what Jewish Women’s Aid does in the community for women survivors of domestic and sexual violence. It will also look at what you can do to help women access the support they need.
