    The myth that Jews do not abuse their spouses must be shattered!
    In this revised edition, Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski directly addresses the problem of spouse abuse in the Jewish community. We cannot permit ourselves to deny the existence of this terrible crime. The time has come to confront the truth and to take definitive steps to end this violation of all that Judaism represents. A leading rabbi and psychiatrist, with striking candor, firmness and compassion, reveals what may have been closely kept dark secrets in many Jewish families, and offers urgently needed advice and direction.

    Praise for The Shame Borne in Silence:
    "It is disturbing yet essential to discuss this tragedy. The relationship between husband and wife is one which should invite the Shechina, the Divine Presence, which radiates joy throughout the home. How tragic when this joy is replaced with the tears of strife and abuse."
    - Rabbi Avraham Pam

    "By drawing attention to a most troubling community mental health problem, Dr. Twerski has done a favor to the Jewish world..."
    - Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, Ph.D.

    "This book is a major contribution to family stability in our troubled society."
    - Rabbi Berel Wein
