Jewish Women's Aid
Jewish Women’s Aid is the only specialist organisation in the UK supporting Jewish women affected by domestic violence.
Wherever, whenever, whoever: we’re here to help you
One woman in four will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime.
It affects all women, regardless of age, education, class, lifestyle or religion; the Jewish community is no different to any other.
Jewish Women’s Aid (JWA) was founded to support the thousands of Jewish women who, each year, will face physical, emotional, psychological, sexual or financial abuse from within their own home. JWA is the only organisation in the UK dealing specifically with the needs of abused Jewish women and their children.
The lack of awareness of domestic violence in the Jewish community has caused damage. Women may remain silent through shame, embarrassment, a feeling of guilt or fear that they will not be believed. They feel alone, that no-one else has experienced such abuse and that it must be their fault.
If you think you might be experiencing, or have experienced, what could be domestic abuse then call us. We know how important it is to be believed, accepted, supported and understood. You are not alone.
And if you know someone close to you who you think might be experiencing domestic abuse and you would like guidance about how you might be able to support them, we can help.
JWA has two core aims:
- To provide confidential, accessible, empowering and culturally sensitive advocacy and support for Jewish women and children affected by domestic violence.
- Through education, training and awareness raising, to ensure that all sectors of the Jewish community recognise and speak out against domestic violence.
