Project Sarah’s goal, as its name makes clear, is to stop abusive relationships at home. Its 14th annual breakfast is set for Sunday, May 17 at at 9:30 a.m., in your home, on Zoom or Facebook.
Given the domestic strain the pandemic is causing, families need Project Sarah now more than in our community. As its leaders say, “Imagine being quarantined with your abuser.”
Charles and Medinah Parker are guests of honor; Rabbi Daniel Z. and Leah Feldman will receive the Rabbinic Supporter award; and the Frisch School Kahal Tzedakah Organization will get the Youth Impact award.
As a bonus, kosher cookbook author Susie Fishbein will cook breakfast in her kitchen, as participants do the same in their own kitchens. Leading experts, including Dr. David Pelcovitz, Senator Loretta Weinberg, attorney Susan Weisen, and Pam Jacobs, the director of New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence, will talk about the importance of supporting Project Sarah.
Project Sarah (Stop Abusive Relationships At Home) provides treatment and resources for Jewish victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse throughout New Jersey. Services include individual and group therapy by highly trained clinical staff, pro bono legal consultations, psychiatric services, and financial and vocational support. It also provides community education workshops, prevention programming, the renowned Magen Yeladim Child Safety Program for schools, a middle school internet safety program, and a broad array of professional trainings. The organization is endorsed by the Rabbinical Council of Bergen County (RCBC) and the North Jersey Board of Rabbis. Donate and register at projectsarah.org or call (973) 777-7638.
