The Awareness Center closed. We operated from April 30, 1999 - April 30, 2014. This site is being provided for educational & historical purposes.
We were the international Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault (JCASA); and were dedicated to ending sexual violence in Jewish communities globally. We did our best to operate as the make a wish foundation for Jewish survivors of sex crimes. In the past we offered a clearinghouse of information, resources, support and advocacy.
This page is dedicated to the memory of Harriett Manning

Charles Manning was arrested when it was learned he attempted to cover up the crimes. Manning's sister, Sadie E. Garrabrant was arrested on charges of being a material witness
