Below is a recent audit of the St Kilda Hebrew Congregation's (Melbourne, Australia) child protection policy. This audit was undertaken by child protection experts at the request of Vivien Resofsky, a long-time social worker and public advocate dedicated to addressing the issue of child sexual abuse in the Australian Jewish community. The intention in posting this audit here is for the broader community to better understand the need for a robust set of policies in this space, and how policies may be improved. Hopefully, it will also encourage this congregation and other community organisations to review and update their current child protection policies. Thank you to Vivien for her ongoing work in this area - she continues to dedicate her time, energy and resources to making our community safer.
