Sisterhood Shalom Bayit – Legislative Action Meeting
October 2, 2019, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Temple Shalom Radnitz Social Hall

Did you know that family violence occurs in Jewish families at about the same rate as in the general community — estimated at between 15 and 25 percent? However, in the Jewish community, victims stay in the abusive relationship for 5 to 15 years longer — two to three times as long — than victims in other communities. Why? Please join us as we gain a better understanding of how family violence impacts the Jewish Community by listening to some victims via the film, When the Vow Breaks.

Then, hear from an expert from Jewish Women International on the importance of the Violence Against Women Act of 2019. The House has passed HR 1585, The Violence Against Women Act of 2019, but the Senate has yet to introduce a companion bill. Finally, we will engage in a postcard writing campaign to our Senators asking for them to support a Senate version of House Resolution 1585. 

Everyone is welcome!  Please join us on this very important evening of learning and action. 

RSVP by September 27th to Lori Kleinfield at or Gwynne Waldorf at
