Confronting the Unknowns in Jewish Family Violence: A Call for Knowledge Development

By Neil B. Guterman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1993

Although increasing attention is being paid to the problem of Jewish family violence, the effectiveness of the Jewish communal response is limited by the existing knowledge base, which provokes more questions than it answers. We need to know more about the actual incidence of Jewish family violence, the unique factors that place Jewish families at risk for family violence, the kinds of programs that are effective in preventing or reducing this problem, and the communal attitudes that can facilitate addressing Jewish family violence. Relatively simple research efforts can be made to provide sound information on this problem.
