Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home)

Sisterhood’s Social Action Committee, Shalom Bayit, has adopted Family Violence as it’s platform.  On Wednesday evening, June 26th, we held our first Shalom Bayit program. This panel discussion introduced the topic of Family Violence and focused on recognition, counseling and resources for adults, children, victims, bystanders and upstanders.

Attendees learned how to recognize domestic violence (both physical and emotional), potential dating red flags, law enforcement’s role, and the long-term effects of trauma. We also heard about early intervention programs, as well as available community resources. 

Our speakers included Rabbi Paley and representatives from law enforcement, the Counseling Place and Jewish Family Service. Additionally, a Temple Shalom member movingly shared her own personal experience with Family Violence. 

There are so many different components to the theme of Family Violence including Elder Abuse, LGBTQ support, Healthy Relationship/Teen Dating Precautions and Legislative issues. Won’t you consider joining our efforts? Our Social Justice committee welcomes your participation.  To get involved in Shalom Biyet or for more information, contact Staci Mendelsohn (slm@hbrtech.com)
