Who we are
Jewish Women's Aid is the only specialist organisation in the UK supporting Jewish women and children affected by domestic abuse & sexual violence.
No Jewish woman should have to face this alone. We are here to help.
Mission, vision and values
One woman in four will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime.
One woman in five will experience sexual assault in her lifetime.
All women are affected, regardless of age, education, class, lifestyle or religion; the Jewish community is no different
Our vision is of a world without violence against women and girls. We exist to help end violence against women and girls in the Jewish community, and to support Jewish women and children affected by it.
Jewish Women's Aid (JWA) was founded to support the thousands of Jewish women who, each year, will face physical, emotional, psychological, sexual or economic abuse from within their own close family. We now also supports Jewish women affected by sexual violence.
