Michael J. Salamon, Ph.D.' s book is so important in that it actually sheds light on this issue and identifies how and why abuse in the Jewish community is less reported and less known than that in the Catholic Church or within other religious groups. -- Robin Sax, author of It Happens Every Day; Dr. Michael Salamon raises some very important questions about the role of spiritual leaders giving guidance on matters of abuse in the Jewish community. One need not agree with Dr. Salamon on every case he cites to recognize that the issues he addresses must be confronted by the Jewish community and its leadership. -- Rabbi Hershel Billet
