A powerful survivor story

My friend N (thank you, girl!) told me about this article about Orr Jordan and his survival of a childhood filled with the horror of incest by his father. Orr Jordan tells his story frequently and helps do the hard and unfortunately all too horrible reality of incest in the world - including the Jewish community and the State of Israel. His courage to speak out has led him to be called the "Elie Wisel of incest."

Read his story and join his efforts to prevent abuse. If you are a survivor, please be aware that the article about him contains some graphic descriptions of the abuse and may be triggering.

Thank you to Haaretz for writing such a story and thanks again to N for letting me know about it.

Wishing you a Sabbath of peace, healing and wholeness,
