Clergy Behaving Badly

Hosted By: American Jewish University

Against the backdrop of the #MeToo/#GamAni movement, veteran anthropologist Dr. Elana Sztokman chronicles sexual abuse in Jewish settings, answering the question on everyone’s mind: How is this happening?

With a portrait of high-profile figures, including their personality types and tactics, Dr. Sztokman’s analysis is grounded in interviews with 84 abuse victims/survivors, Jewish communal professionals, and volunteers. Learn how communal settings are ripe for abuse, how abusers coopt Jewish values as a grooming tactic, how high-profile abusers often receive high-profile support, and how the search for support and accountability often doubly victimizes the abused. Dr. Sztokman and Dr. Jeffrey Herbst will discuss recommendations for social and cultural change, reminding us that we are not free to desist from action, especially not now.
