Several years ago, the Clergy Task Force of Jewish Women International (JWI) created both a Misheberach prayer on behalf of families experiencing abuse and a version of Sh’ma Kolenu on behalf of survivors of domestic abuse. We would like to share both of these prayers and encourage you to incorporate them into services in the coming days and weeks of this season (and beyond).

Additional prayers, music and other material for clergy and congregants can be found in the Clergy Task Force section of JWI’s website.

The JF&CS Journey to Safety team wishes everyone a happy and peaceful new year!
