Project Spotlight: Bat Melech

For women suffering from abuse in their marriages, both physical and mental, asking for help takes bravery. Just admitting there is a problem can be difficult, especially for Orthodox Jewish women. They worry that by asking for help, others in their religious community will think negatively about their families.

Yet there is hope at the Fellowship-supported Bat Melech, the only shelter in Israel specifically for Orthodox Jewish women. Here they join a loving community and are provided kosher meals, job training or help with schoolwork, legal advice, and emotional support.

The chairman and director of the shelter want to thank Fellowship donors for all their wonderful support! We wouldn’t be able to keep programs like Bat Melech running without your generosity.

Thank you very much for your support of the women and children of Bat Melech.

Bat Melech operates two shelters for battered religious women. We save women and children from violence, we support them, we provide for their needs and help them break out of the cycle of violence, placing them on their way to a new life without fear and with hope.

We are honored to be worthy of your support.

On behalf of the women and children, we bless you with good health and joy!

- Chairman and director of Bat Melech
