Rivka Karasik: The Religious Runaway

This is not the story of a survivor of a sex crime, yet what she describes is very similar to what many adult survivors who grew up in a religious community experience when they choose to assimilate into the secular world.

At 21, the age at which she was expected to marry, Ms. Karasik left the Lubavitch community of the Hasidic Jews in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY.
