Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home)
Sisterhood’s Social Action Committee, Shalom Bayit, has adopted Family Violence as it’s platform. Jewish law includes within it a blueprint for a just and ethical society, where everyone gives to one another, helps one another and protects one another. Now is the time you can help protect those faced with family violence.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) needs to be reauthorized. (Click HERE to learn more about the law.) VAWA addresses domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. It funds shelter services, legal assistance, hotlines, counseling and prevention programs. The House recently passed HR 1585, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2019, with bipartisan support! Now, the Senate must do the same.
Won’t you consider joining our efforts? Our Social Justice committee welcomes your participation. To get involved in Shalom Bayit or for more information, contact Lori Kleinfield (email@example.com) or Gwynne Waldorf (firstname.lastname@example.org)
