    "Creating Awareness & Effecting Change". Family Violence and sexual assault exists in every community and every culture but only recently have we as a community resolved to confront the reality of family violence and sexual assault and its long-term repercussions on all members of the Jewish family. The Jewish Taskforce Against Family Violence actively advances community education and awareness by organising instructive forums presented by international and local experts In the field. The Taskforce works closely with the Rabbinate, Jewish Care and mainstream service providers including the Police, to assist those affected by family violence and sexual assault. The Jewish Taskforce Education Team designs and facilitates age-appropriate educational programs geared toward school children promoting personal safety and the recognition of healthy relationships, to ensure that young people maintain respectful relationships leading to the creation of safe, happy homes in the future.
