Tzedek (Hebrew for Justice) is Australia’s only dedicated advocacy group for Jewish victims/survivors of child sexual abuse.

Tzedek, a not for profit organization, aims to advocate for victim survivors of child sexual abuse and educate the broader Jewish community on matters concerning child safety, the importance of maintaining accountability, and broaching the matter with sensitivity and integrity.”

The event, on Wednesday 12 June, 7.30-9pm at 3 Saber Street Woolhara (JewishCare),  is free but places are limited and bookings are essential. Light food and beverages will be provided.  Please
