Shiur

I went to a shiur tonight given by Rabbi Twerski on spouse abuse in the home. It was the first time (I think) that I had to been to any shiur given Rabbi Twerski, and I have to say, it was very informative. He spoke about how there is not only physical abuse, but there is also emotional abuse as well as marital rape, going on inside Jewish communities. I had known that before, as a matter of fact, I knew a family that went through not only that, many other hardships as well. So it did not really surprise me, though I was shocked at one of the statistics he gave. He said that in Israel, more women die from domestic abuse, than from terrorist attacks. That is a shame. Supposedly, there is less domestic abuse in the Jewish community than there is among the goyim, but as Rabbi Twerski said, even one case, is one too many. I just wanted to share that with you all, and help spread the awareness.

No, I do not want to 'get it on', I would appreciate if you would keep all lewd comments to yourself.
