The National Council of Jewish Women (Hoboken/Hudson Section) is hosting its first educational program on Domestic Violence Awareness, October 18, 2007 at 7:30 pm at the United Synagogue of Hoboken. Margaret Abrams, Domestic Violence Response Team Coordinator, along with the Hoboken Police Department will be presenting information on domestic violence as well as resources that one can use if they need help. This program is designed to clarify any misconceptions of domestic violence. What is it? Who is at risk? What legal rights do I have if I am a victim?
