The outreach coordinator for an Oakland-based domestic violence prevention program will lead a free community discussion at Temple Bethel Hillel in Richmond on Nov. 9.

Amalia Bob-Waksburg of Shalom Bayit will focus on domestic violence prevention and response within the Jewish community at the the Sunday morning bagel brunch at Temple Beth Hillel at 801 Park Central (Hilltop exit off I-80).

The brunch, which is open to the community with a suggested donation of $5, runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

Bob-Waksburg will go over Shalom Bayit’s services and its three main programs, including counseling and direct support for battered women and children, community education and a Love Shouldn’t Hurt, nonviolent dating approach directed at Jewish youth.

She will also discuss how to recognize warning signs of domestic violence, how to intervene and what to do to make communities safer. A discussion will follow the presentation.
