Shalom Bayit lands grant from Hadassah

Shalom Bayit, a Bay Area center for domestic violence prevention and support services, has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Hadassah Foundation.

The grant was part of $182,500 that the foundation has awarded this year. It was one of three awards given to U.S. organizations that, through Jewish tradition, promote healthy relationships, self-esteem and wellness.

Shalom Bayit will use the money to further its program on dating violence prevention. Titled “Love Shouldn’t Hurt: Campus and Beyond,” Shalom Bayit will take the curriculum to college campuses across the country in partnership with Hillel: the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life.

The Hadassah Foundation seeks to augment the work of Hadassah by improving the status, health and well being of women and girls from diverse cultural groups in the United States and Israel.
