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.
Rabbi David Zwiebel how about funding a legitimate rape crisis center!
Rabbi Dovid Zwiebel
In the following video of Rabbi Dovid Zwiebel boasting to his
constituents about Agudath Israel of America and its many
accomplishments, including the $18 million in grant money for yeshivas.
it be great if Zwiebel would be able to put that $18 million into
helping Jewish survivors who were abused by his friends and the others
who feel that Agudath Israel of America is an important organization?
I'm not talking about a fly by night organization that goes to various
rabbonim for permission to make hotline reports, or will falsely fear
making a report will deter people from going to them. I'm talking about
a legitimate one that has ties with The New York City Alliance Against
Sexual Assault and is a member of the National Sexual Violence Resource
The Awareness Center is also calling for Zwiebel
and everyone else connected to the aggudah to do teshuvah on this, by
financially compensation every survivor of a sexually predator connected
to his organization. If you don't dream it, and put it out there --
it will never happen.
Those who are orthodox
deserve the same civil rights as the rest of us who live in the United
States. How dare these folks take these rights away.
