Shalom Bayit is the only Northern California agency that provides domestic violence services to the Jewish community. When it was launched over 20 years ago, domestic violence in Jewish homes was barely acknowledged. Shalom Bayit’s efforts to educate rabbis, community leaders, and educators have shifted this perception. Its 24-hour emergency phone line, direct financial support, in-person counseling, and community education reached 1,671 adults in 2013. Its teen education program reached an additional 1,100 young people, fostering discussions about healthy relationships and helping the community to recognize signs of abuse.
