Did you know that abuse victims are five times more likely
to seek help from clergy than any other professional*?
Religious leaders with skills and tools to support these victims can be of much greater help than those without.
JWI’s Clergy Task Force on Domestic Abuse in the Jewish Community is providing a training webinar for rabbis, cantors, and rabbinical and cantorial students!
Please join us Thursday, March 22nd from noon to 1:00 p.m. (EST)
Participants will learn to recognize domestic abuse and increase their skills in providing support to abused women and children. The importance of collaborating with community-based organizations will be emphasized. The agenda includes: Voices of Survivors ▪ Dynamics of Domestic Abuse ▪ Role of Clergy ▪ Spiritual Tools ▪ Clergy Challenges ▪ Prevention ▪ Next Steps
All participants must register in advance. https://www.jwi.org/SSLPage.aspx?pid=2723
Registered participants who have particular issues or challenges that they would like to have addressed are encouraged to contact Deborah Rosenbloom at 800.343.2823 or [email protected].
Please forward this email to your network of rabbis and cantors!
