Abstract (summary)

Domestic violence in the Jewish Community is an inherently complicated issue involving an understanding of the Jewish religion as well as all aspects of domestic violence and abuse. The study attempts to discuss the limited literature of domestic violence in Jewish populations. The study involves an exploratory survey of Jewish teens, ages 14-18, (N= 68) about their personal understanding of domestic violence which includes; what actions may be considered abusive knowledge of prevalence in the United States and the Jewish community, as well as any personal abuse history. The self-reported survey shows that 14.7% of the respondents have experienced domestic violence in the home. Of those respondents, 20% reported physical abuse, while a majority of those reporting abuse reported some type of emotional or psychological abuse. Several barriers in the Jewish community limit the reporting of domestic violence in Jewish homes. They may include barriers in the religious community, family cultural values and fear of disbelief.
