"There is nothing shameful about admitting that a marriage isn't working; about seeking help, and even refuge when necessary. To the contrary, that is what kehillah - the Jewish community - is there for: to heed the cry, protect the vulnerable, create safe space, and give care and shelter to those who need it, so that the wounds, physical and emotional, can heal.
That is what Jewish Women's Aid does, week after week, year after year. It has earned our admiration. Let us give it our support, so that it can support others and help them find shalom bayit, the domestic peace, they badly lack and long for".
Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks, in his sermon about Domestic Violence in the Jewish Community, November 2004.
