violence against women in israel

The National Council of Jewish Women of Canada has written to Ambassador Miriam Ziv, Israel's Ambassador to Canada, to express their concern regarding women and violence in Israel. The letter urges the Israeli Knesset to renew the Violence Against Women Act  and calls upon the Israeli government to speak for and support the basic rights of Israeli women, through good governance and public education. The letter was sent in December 2011 by Marni Besser, President of the National Council of Jewish Women of Canada.
