Agency Overview

SHALVA is the oldest independent Jewish domestic abuse agency in the United States and has been instrumental in facilitating national and international dialogues on the specific needs of Jewish families experiencing domestic violence. SHALVA carries out its mission by working to create "a zero tolerance" for domestic abuse in the Jewish community.

SHALVA'S first executive director was Sherry Dimarsky. In 1986, SHALVA's first year of existence, 24 clients were served. Since then, SHALVA has worked with over 4,000 clients from every denomination of Judaism that seek assistance for domestic abuse. Over the years, SHALVA has grown to include free counseling services in the form of crisis-counseling, ongoing individual, support and educational groups.

SHALVA works in partnership with domestic abuse agencies throughout the Chicago metropolitan area to increase awareness around culturally-specific Jewish issues and to serve as a resource specializing in Chicago's Jewish population. SHALVA's community education programs reach more than 3,400 people annually throughout the Jewish community and our newsletter is sent to over 19,500 homes biannually. Since 1986, SHALVA volunteers and staff have educated thousands of individuals about violence in Jewish relationships. SHALVA staff trains Rabbis, police officers, hospital social workers, camp counselors, teachers, friends and family of victims in order to increase education and community awareness about domestic abuse, to inform the public about SHALVA's counseling and education services, and to promote advocacy around the issue of domestic abuse.
