NCJW Honored at Project S.A.R.A.H. Breakfast

National Council of Jewish Women Bergen County Section was proud to be one of the honorees at the Project S.A.R.A.H. 10th Annual Breakfast on Sunday, April 3.

Project S.A.R.A.H. (Stop Abusive Relationships at Home) is a program that works to overcome cultural, legal and religious barriers confronting victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. While proudly serving the Orthodox Jewish community, Project S.A.R.A.H. turns no one away due to race, gender or financial difficulties.

Accepting the Volunteer Recognition Award on behalf of NCJW Bergen County Section, in the company of a large group of NCJW volunteers and supporters at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck, Marcia Levy, Presidium member, said, “We know that the home is a sacred place that needs to be protected with mutual respect and love by everyone who is a part of our community. We applaud Project S.A.R.A.H. as it has expanded to educate children and parents to be aware of and meet the challenges of our changing society.”

NCJW’s National StoP initiative, Strategies to Prevent Domestic Violence, was created many years ago to further this concept. Since its founding in 1923, NCJW has stressed the importance that Jewish women place on recognizing the needs of their sisters. It is reassuring to know that Project S.A.R.A.H. exists to help those women and their families.
