Dr. Orly Innes, is a hero, not only for her work in Israel's National professional staff of the "City without Violence" program, which aims to confront all types of violence on a city-wide level; but for being brave enough to share her identity. By doing this she is showing the world that sexual assault can and does happen to anyone. That those who are sexually victimized are never to blame for the crimes committed against them. I personally know how difficult that decision can be to go public about being a victim of a sex, especially when you are a public figure. Over a year ago I also went public about being sexually assaulted by my past rabbi's brother, who is a retired college professor and also has smeicha (rabbinic ordination). It's a difficult place, needing to heal, yet also wanting to reach out to others who have been victims of heinous crimes. Dr. Innes, thank you so much for speaking out!
