Sexual Abuse Prevention

Congregation Ahavas Achim aims to provide its congregants with a positive spiritual, social, and learning environment in a peaceful atmosphere that promotes religious life and growth. We are deeply committed to safeguarding the members of our synagogue community so they feel and are safe at all times. With that goal in mind, we have created a Sexual Abuse Prevention and Response Policy. This policy applies both to sexual misconduct directed against adults and to all forms of abuse against children and vulnerable adults, who are less able to protect themselves.    

Please click on the below links to see

1. A full copy of the policy

2. A summary of the policy, plus a page to sign acknowledgement (required for certain staff and volunteers)

3. The version of the policy written for our youth group leaders

4. A blank Incident Report form, which you may fill out if you have a violation of the policy you'd like to report.
