Thursday, Jul 16 2020

Lonye Rasch’s July 6th, 2020 article in eJewishPhilanthropy discusses what COVID-19 has taught Israeli women leading the response to domestic abuse among Jewish and Arab women. Lonye’s article emphasizes how important it is to have empowered leadership in the local community who can raise awareness, report that abuse, and speak for abused and marginalized Israeli women. Lonye reports that for these women leaders, the ”aha” moment came when the Israeli Government National Security Council created a panel to devise an end strategy as the COVID-19 lockdown is being eased, there were no women or educators among the group.
