Woman to Woman, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the victims of domestic violence in Israel, established the Jerusalem Shelter for Battered Women in 1982. Since then, under the auspices and supervision of the Israel Ministry of Social Affairs, it has aided hundreds of women who have suffered abuse at the hands of their partners. The Shelter provides physical haven and emotional security for women from all over the country regardless of religion, race, nationality, age, education or economic situation. They are referred to us by welfare authorities and social services, the police, hospitals, and emergency centers.

Battered women are the victims of physical, sexual, emotional, verbal and economic assault and coercion. They are caught in a vicious cycle of violence which they cannot stop and which they cannot escape. The Shelter comes to the aid of these women and their children at a most difficult and vulnerable time in their lives, holding out the promise of a change for the better.
