Jewish Care, together with Unchain My Heart and Glen Eira City Council, is pleased to host a community breakfast in support of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign on 3 December 2019 at the Glen Eira Town Hall Auditorium.
While the event theme has a broadly Jewish lens, it will have relevance for other CALD and faith-based communities and service providers also – all are welcome. Download the flyer below.
The guest speaker
“This is not a Jewish problem.”
This was one of the most common responses that Naomi Tucker received in the early 90s when she approached community leaders and organisations hoping to start a conversation about family violence.
Almost 30 years on, what began as a grassroots volunteer-led campaign is today the thriving Shalom Bayit, a Jewish family violence prevention agency and one of the first of its kind in the United States. With a breadth of activities from clergy training and youth education programs to the MenschUp! initiative, Shalom Bayit’s goal is community transformation: to improve the health and vitality of the Jewish community by ensuring everyone’s right to healthy, violence-free relationships.
As its founder and Executive Director, Naomi has worked in the field of family violence prevention for over 35 years. Previously a board member of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Naomi is an experienced speaker, author and educator and is a national consultant in the US on faith-based approaches to ending violence in the home.
In her keynote address, Naomi will describe the importance of a whole-of-community response to preventing violence, and how each and every one of us can play a part. Join us to learn more about what you can do to help create a healthy, happy and equal Jewish community.
