About Sacred Spaces:
Sacred Spaces is a cross-denominational initiative to address abuses of power in Jewish institutions. We help prevent and respond to abuse in a way that minimizes damage to the institution, while ensuring that support for the victim and protection for constituents are the institution’s top priority. Sacred Spaces empowers institutions with the tools they need to prevent and respond to abuse through policy development and training.
As an organization, we are also committed to creating Sacred Spaces in our internal operations, fostering a workplace environment that models transparency and accountability with direct and regular feedback loops, clear goal-setting, and a culture of gratitude and improvement. We recognize that our work is possible because of the contributions of our incredible team and so we invest in their professional development, providing ample opportunities for on-the-ground learning, mentorship, and meaningful involvement in organizational decision-making.
