In 2018, 6,488 women assisted with 113 violence treatment centers across the country. A new center is expected to open in Tel Aviv next year, and another three over the next few years.

Woman To Woman: Battered Women’s Shelter in Jerusalem

The Woman to Woman Battered Women’s Shelter in Jerusalem is a refuge for women of all backgrounds who are escaping abusive relationships.  The reason I’m nominating this charity is because issues of domestic abuse are not discussed enough within Israel, and often not enough within our own communities as well. Indeed, speaking to volunteers from these shelters, I was told that not many diaspora donations are given to such shelters, simply because of the stigma associated with domestic violence: people don’t want to believe this happens in our own backyard.
