Few Are Guilty, but All Are Responsible: The Obligations to Help Survivors of Abuse

By Mark Dratch

JSafe: The Jewish Institute Supporting an Abuse-Free Environment, January 10, 2007

Rabbi Mark Dratch, founder of JSafe: The Jewish Institute Supporting an Abuse-Free Environment, demonstrates that the obligation to help victims of sexual abuse falls upon the entire community. He also offers concrete suggestions on how communal organizations can treat and prevent abuse. For example: Schools, synagogues, camps and youth groups must develop and enact policies that regulate the activities of those who work for them which can work towards preventing abuse of professional boundaries and can prevent circumstances in which students and members might be vulnerable.
