Her voice is soft and calm. It’s early on a Sunday morning. She thanks the caller, who chooses to remain anonymous, for calling and talks her through her options. She is one of the unsung heroes helping victims of rape and sexual abuse.

The Jerusalem Rape Crisis Center is a sanctuary for sexual abuse survivors. The center’s main goal is, as the team explained, for victims to know that they are not alone, that there is somewhere for them to go.
