Fallout from COVID-19 Brings More Domestic Violence, Jewish Women’s Collective Fund Responds

For all Israelis, the lockdown triggered by COVID-19 poses a myriad of challenges, both emotional and economic. For those who experience domestic violence, however, basic safety becomes more elusive. “Home is the safest place to be for most people,” relates Liza Nikolaichuk, CEO of Maslan, the Negev’s Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Support Center. ”But for some women, home is far from safe. Women and children forced to stay home with an abusive partner or father can suffer severe violence.”
