Efforts to combat child sexual abuse are being stepped up

Just by listening to the intensity with which Manny Waks talks, one already begins to appreciate the ardour with which he approaches his work of tackling child sexual abuse within Jewish society.

Waks was himself a victim of such abuse when growing up in the Chabad community of Melbourne in the late 1980s and early 90s, and this experience along with the obstacles he encountered bringing his story to light led him to become a leading activist for dealing with the problem as it manifests inside Jewish communities around the world.
