I am in the process of writing a personal and theological meditation on the issue of child abuse. I will especially focus on the role that rabbi’s might play within their congregations in identifying and ameliorating the suffering of child members. Right now, I am in the process of identifying Jewish traditional sources which deal with this problem. I am also trying to determine what type, and how much training rabbis receive both in rabbinical school and through professional education. I hope to talk to a pulpit rabbi who has counseled families suffering from abuse to try to understand what constructive roles they can play (and also what roles they cannot play, if any).
