To help religious/charedi women in crisis or distress and in need of support or aid; to prevent future abuse and violence through educational workshops; to raise awareness of these important issues within religious communities.
Since 1993 the Crisis Center for Religious Women has been providing emotional support, advice and referrals for religious women and children who are in crisis.
The services provided by the Center include a national 24-hour hotline manned by trained volunteers, in various languages; counseling sessions for victims; referrals to community services and therapists; accompanying victim to hospital; accompanying victim through police and judicial process; Amharic-speaking escorts who serve also as translators.
One of our main goals is prevention through education To this end we offer workshops for toddlers, school children, teenagers and parents; as well as for Rabbis, community leaders and professionals.
Over the years we have helped more 45,000 women and families. Over the years the center has proven to be an important vehicle of social change. Please help us to continue to help those in need and to put a stop to the cycle of violence.
