Description
 
Carol Goodman Kaufman (au). It is difficult to accept how many wives go home with their husbands to ongoing physical & emotional abuse in Jewish homes. Here is a compelling investigation of the Jewish community’s reaction -- or non-reaction -- to domestic violence. Concerned with the sins of the community more than the sins of the abuser, Kaufman finds that rabbis & community leaders are not doing enough & are not informed enough to help the abused women in their congregations get the support, protection, & guidance they need. Through her interviews with survivors of abuse, rabbis, & lay community leaders, Kaufman takes a hard look at the Jewish community, its rules, reg’s., & followers, & discovers the ways in which it helps & hinders victims of abuse.
