Get help from Shalom Bayit 

Help Is Available. If you want to talk to someone at Shalom Bayit, please call us at (866) SHALOM-7.

You don’t have to go through this alone.

No one deserves to be abused. It is not your fault-even if friends, family or congregants blame you for what is happening. Only the abuser is responsible for controlling his or her violence.

Shalom Bayit offers confidential peer counseling, support, information, referrals, and advocacy to Jewish women who have experienced abuse in the home. To speak to someone, please call us (toll free within the Bay Area) at:

(866) SHALOM-7 (742-5667) or (510) 845-SAFE (7233)

If you need to reach someone immediately, call your closest 24-hour domestic violence hotline.
