HAPPENING TODAY: Book launch!
Please join me for this very special event marking the launch of my new book, "When Rabbis Abuse"
Please join me TODAY for the launch of my new book, When Rabbis Abuse: Power, Gender, and Status in the Dynamics of Sexual Abuse in Jewish Culture
The book is a product of seven years of research with over 80 interviewees, victims/survivors, experts, and advocates on this issue, including many of YOU.
I would especially like to mention my friend, the late Miriam Isserow, z"l, who was the moderator of the #GamAni FB group and was a fierce advocate for victims/survivors of sexual abuse, and who died suddenly in April. She spoke in February on the panel in my course, Jewish Feminism Reimagined, about sexual abuse. She shared many insights from her 30+ years of advocacy on behalf of women and victims of DV and sexual abuse. I miss her, and I dedicated the book in her memory.
Speakers at today's event include:
* Devon Spier, best-selling poet, liturgist, and rabbinical student
* Rabbi Daniel Pressman, head of the Ethics Committee (Va'ad Hakavod) of the Rabbinical Assembly
* Asher Lovy, Director of Za'akah.
The event will be moderated by Sybil Sanchez.
